Complex and funny thriller
2 November 2001 | by EamonnSee all my reviews

This subtle film will certainly bear repeated watching. Psychoanalysis, perversion, money, and death are among the principal themes, treated with a dead-pan humour that does not hide some serious questions about analyst-patient relationships.
