Intense modern noir!
26 February 2001 | by filmarificSee all my reviews

Noir masterpiece from a man who can do comedies and gentle character portraits while keeping the pace at Turbo overload speed... Avi Nesher is a genius director... who knew Mario Van Peebles and Nicolette Sheridan could act like this...??? Award winning performances from them, and a story that makes you feel like you have a frog in your throat for an hour and a half! A thrill of a thriller, good fun, while being dark... and SEXY!!! This is Last Tango in Paris meets The French Connection... you GOTTA check it out!
