QUIET THRILLER
5 March 2003 | by jdaniels-4See all my reviews

I bought this video knowing nothing about it, only that the cover compared it to 9 1/2 weeks (why I'm not sure!). The version I watched was dubbed in English, usually something which I can't stand, but in this case it was fairly well done and did not distract from the picture. I found the film itself quite enjoyable, well directed and very nicely photographed. There's sex and violence but much less than you would find in a similar American production (Basic Instinct, for example). The film really just boils down to a cat-and-mouse game (no pun intended) between the two main characters (which intensifies as the film progresses). If you demand action all the way through a film you probably won't enjoy this, but if you have an empathy with "world movies", you may find it to your liking.
