detective story too deep to be just ordinary one
26 February 2009 | by darimaSee all my reviews

I like detectives. I watched this one with pleasure. Acting is perfect. "Don't wake up sleeping dog". The dog is truth. While it is hidden, life of two connected families and 2 of their friends and companions can go it's routine way. As soon as they "wake up the dog", it changes everything. "The sleeping dog" is a suicide of one of the members of their friendly circle, which happened a few years ago. Began with discussing why had he done, what he did, they have found in his death more then they expected to find and more then they wanted to know... In some extend this story is more then just ordinary detective story, because it reveals complex and confused relations between close friends at first sight. But is it really so?
