Oh, we wouldn't want someone's death to interfere with your games. What was your relationship with her?
Causal? You were boning her, weren't you?
It wasn't serious. What's your prolem?
You are. I don't like you.
Fine, don't ask me out on a date.
Don't worry, I won't. I've seen how your dates end up.

The European cut of the film runs approximately 11 minutes longer and goes into greater detail about the relationship between Peter and his dead wife. Several of the dialogue scenes also run longer. The US cut was shortened to speed up the pace and make the film more action-packed. See more »
I really liked this movie a lot. Very well written murder mystery with clues that are fair and sort of a scary movie to boot! It really keeps you guessing right to the last scene who is the disturbed murderer. Set on an island off Canada at a world chess tournament, where the killer is murdering his or her (I won't spill the beans!) victims by chess moves taken by the players. Every one and I mean everyone, is a suspect as the cast gets whittled down by the killer leading to a heart pounding climax. Nice photography with a creepy opening scene. If you like to play Sherlock Holmes or just like an edge of your seat mystery thriller you will enjoy this movie a lot. I guarentee you will keep changing your guess to who the killer is many times while watching this.....but use your little gray cells and follow the clues! Neat flick!
