Flashes of brilliance
15 April 2012 | by BromiosSee all my reviews

An entertaining movie, with flashes of brilliance. The opening sequence was a sensual delight and Lombard was entrancing from go to end. Wenham has his moments. The plot was convoluted enough for the the keenest crime aficionado. The direction was uneven, but overall I had the sense that Joffe was back, but has yet to settle in.

Some of the police behavior did not ring true, but then again, I I guess it was all possible. Set in Sydney and on the road to Wollongong, the film highlighted some parts of NSW that don't normally make it to the movies.

Worth watching if you want a pleasant evening watching an interesting drama, a beautiful mature women, and glimpses of Sydney.
