lost the plot
15 August 2015 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film starts out encouragingly enough when 2 murdered bodies are found by the leading man in a house with a blind man playing a piano. You get some idea of the confusion to follow when our hero wipes his prints on items by the dead man but then leaves a trail of fingerprints throughout the house.Additionally the blind man hears him going about the house,so why didn't he hear the murders? After that all is confusion and the actual murderer introduced until late in the film which entails a lot of explanatory dialogue.Despite this and running through the film a second time I still don't quite understand what the plot was.
