It's 1947 and private investigator Nero Bloom is about to experience his most twisted mystery yet! When hired by a rich socialite to secretly follow and protect her gambling husband, Charlie Lomax, Nero has no idea what mix of mystery and intrigue lay ahead. While the case seems to be "business as usual" at first, things quickly take a turn for the worse when Nero catches Charlie sneaking off to a secret love-nest rendezvous at a local hotel. Before you can say "whodunit," Charlie winds up dead in the hotel elevator and, with no other witnesses to the crime, Nero becomes the Chief of Police's prime suspect. Fired by Mrs. Lomax and his reputation tainted, Nero has little time to clear his name and find Charlie's real killer. With the help of friend and news reporter Max Cohen, Nero sets off to question anyone who could possibly be a suspect.

Nero Bloom Raises the Bar
16 June 2009 | by lclark-28See all my reviews

For those of us who have had the privilege of viewing this film one can only imagine how these young filmmakers did it on a shoestring budget of less than 5K. It's astounding! This movie truly epitomizes the best of independent film-making. The story hits all the beats and the cinematography is right on the mark. I think audiences are hungry for some straight forward gum shoe detective values and this film delivers the goods. One thing that makes this film so authentic is the quality of the cast. Several of the actors are regulars at the Pulse Opera House in Warren Indiana. I'm not sure very many of them had acted in front of the camera before but they all stepped up and really delivered. Can't wait to see the sequel.
