Suspenseful and fairly enjoyable detective movie.
9 November 2020 | by SlavicSee all my reviews

This is a nice little film. What I noticed about it that it doesn't look cheap and the production actually looks quite lavish which helps to give that right authentic look of Victorian era. I don't watch the foreign films usually with the subtitles on, (I prefer them dubbed instead), but I gave this one a chance and it kept me glued on after the first 10 minutes into it. I have to commend on Sonja Gerhardt's performance here, because she was great. She carried the whole movie well. I think the rest of the cast does also an exceptional job. This is a pretty straightforward storytelling with the so-traditional unmasking the killer at the end. Which I'm actually pretty happy about it, because lately I'm sick and tried of those films when they leave you hanging with the unanswered questions or ambiguous endings. Also, I think this movie tries something new, it tries to differentiate itself from other Jack The Ripper stories by centering the story on the main lady character and turning her into detective-lady herself instead of having some detective-man doing the investigations on murders.

No movie is perfect, but this one is good. The movie is moderately violent, but doesn't go too crazy on gore. So overall, it's a decent Jack The Ripper film among many the others which deserves a look.
