In ten minutes, everything can change - for these ten people, it will. An innovative real-time crime thriller in which the murderous events of one fateful day, committed between 11:50am and noon, are replayed from different points of view.
Between 11:50 and 12:00 noon, a crime is commited. In the same ten minute period, we follow the lives of the ten people, all connected to this crime. As we see each person's point of view, we are propelled closer and closer to the truth of what exactly happened...and why.Written by
At the hotel where some scenes were filmed, cast and crew began to notice that they were working amongst members of the "oldest profession" and their "managers", all of whom ended up being very cooperative about helping keep the noise down when the camera rolled. A few even ask to audition for parts as extras. See more »
"Ten 'til Noon" is one of those films that are more interesting for their form rather than their content. The concept (how different but interconnecting characters spend 10 minutes of their life, from 11:50 to 12:00 p.m) is intriguing, the twists (that come when the concept is finally broken) are genuinely unexpected, the acting is fine (Rayne Guest, in perhaps the film's trickiest role, is both explosively sexy and a good actress), the direction is perfectly OK for the budget, but ultimately the film is little more than an exercise in gimmickry (even having a 5-minute epilogue sequence AFTER some of the end credits have rolled), with a few Tarantino influences also evident (mostly in the dialogue). Overall, I'd say it's worth seeing for its sheer audacity. (**)
