The film is based on the book 'The Silver Pigs', the first of Lindsey Davis's series of novels about Ancient Roman 'Informer' (private detective) Marcus Didius Falco. However, it bears little relation to the book, jettisoning most of the plot and characters. See more »
I'm not a purist. I don't care if they film the Bible and it comes out as "Top Gun", as long as it is a good movie. This is a good movie and doesn't deserve the bum rap it gets. If it were made in the US we'd have had James Garner in the title role instead of Brian Brown, but who cares. This is a clever story that is well filmed and acted and keeps promising more. It delivers via solid performances and great twists in the plot. I'd kill to have this on DVD or VHS. Watch it on TV and see what you think. I think you'll bemoan the fact this wasn't made into a series or a TV series, at least. This should have been one of those cult films only the acting is probably too good.
