Budget thriller that does its job
22 February 2009 | by rodduncan-1See all my reviews

I don't think you can judge a budget thriller with the same measures as you use to judge a thriller that cost tens of millions to make.

Cut out the helicopter explosions and car smash-ups chases. Reduce the number of locations to the absolute minimum. Then see what is left of a big-budget thriller. Usually very little. But in white angel - constructed cleverly around the limited resources that were available - there is a compelling narrative that never feels slow.

Maybe I see it this way because I am a writer and can see the elegance of what the film-makers have done in this case. A compelling story and a fine central performance make this a British psychological thriller well worth watching.
