Another Mystery Novel Adaptation
7 June 2019 | by btm-09410See all my reviews

As with most mystery films in modern cinema the intrigue which captures an audiences attention lies in a film-makers ability to sustain and unravel a plot sufficiently over the duration of a movie.

The pacing of this movie is painfully slow, but only because there is a limited amount of content to faithfully adapt. Otherwise, it's well acted, surprising and suspenseful.

Do yourself a favor and do not ruin the movie's plot for yourself before you watch it, otherwise you'll be depriving yourself of most its entertainment value
