Ten years ago, after being accused of a hideous murder of a mother and her twin daughters, Sean Veil became paranoid, filming himself along twenty-four hours a day to have an alibi if necessary. The small time psychologist Saul Seger became a famous forensic profiler and writer with the case and every now and then he accuses Sean Veil of the crime. The reporter Katie Carter believes in Sean's innocence. When the body of the missing Mary Shaw is found, Sean has to prove where he was five years ago. However, the tapes that can prove that he is not guilty have mysteriously disappeared from the storage shelf and Sean suspects that Saul has stolen them to incriminate him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Smart and a little disturbing
27 June 2005 | by IndyrodSee all my reviews

This Irish movie is my surprise hit of the weekend so far. I've never heard of this movie, and had no idea what to expect except what is on the DVD box, which looked pretty good. The story is about a guy that was accused of a brutal triple homicide ten years ago, and was let go because of technicalities. Since he believed he was being set up the police, he started videotaping every single thing he has done since then, 24/7/52, believing the cops were trying to hang other murders on him, he's turned into a real paranoid. And for good reason, because a dying sick detective is trying to get him for anything he can, before he dies himself. Bring into this a forensic crime writer who keeps giving lectures and writing books about guilty criminals that get off because of technicalities. So, our guy even has a camera mounted on his torso pointing towards his face whenever he leaves his bunker like home, which has cameras everywhere possible. Along come the cops who accuse him again, of a murder five years ago, and when he goes to find that particular tape, it is missing. YEEKS!!!! Then things get really complicated for him, and we get into a bunch of twists and turns towards the climax of the story, that made this a great Saturday night flick that's a little off center, and somewhat disturbing. Great movie, and I hope some of the rest of you have a chance to see it. Very very original, and quite creative, with excellent performances. This is my pick of the week for something out of the blue.
