A boring simple film which tries to be artistic...
9 January 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

Freya Mavor is a Scottish (not French) actress and model. She is thin and tall, easy one the eyes and definitely hot...

Well, I really hope you like her ...a lot, because she is practically in ...every scene of this movie! Not doing anything really. Walking, driving, observing, changing clothes...

There is a plot but is simple and totally naive with today's standards. That's why it is supposed to take place a few decades ago where forensics were basic and you could fool them more easily.

The narrative has some serious problems. You may think at some point that it might be similar to Memento, but that's far from the truth. The premise is really simple, just the narrative and the editing (lots of split screens and linear wipes) are confusing.

Overall: It is a boring film witch tries to be artistic in terms of narrative, editing and cinematography. The leading lady is practically in every scene so if you like her, you might be bored less. Generally, I don't recommend this movie.
