Classic moody film noir with excellent performances
I went to see "TEMPTED" at the Fantasy Filmfest in Cologne, Germany.
I´m not going to give away anything about the plot. I will just say, that this one is a truly good moody thriller, which is played excellently and executed (technically) equally good. This movie is a must for those who liked "WILD THINGS", and it´s also a must for everyone who didn´t like the aforementioned movie for it´s too many plot twists. "TEMPTED" always stays believable as the plot and the characters are concerned. I very much enjoyed the location (New Orleans)and together with the thriller plot it adds up to be very moody. Last but not least, the interaction between Burrows and Facinelli is very believable and sexy; not to mention Reynolds great performance!
All in all just two words: Watch it!!!
