When Marta picks up the mail off of the floor, the envelope she finds is crisp and clean. When she goes into her apartment and sets the mail down, the envelope is now crinkled and damaged. You can tell it has been opened, but she continues to open it as if it's the first time. Likely the production only had one copy of the envelope and this was a later take. See more »
I'm sorry this is an open and shut case of suicide and quite frankly Benny we are getting to the point where I have to ask you what we're doing here.
The method? Throat slit? Typical for a suicide?
Yes, I mean, that's dramatic, but look around. I mean, the guy practical lives in a Clue board.

Generally speaking you tend to find more murder mystery TV shows than movies, this is partially since it's hard to build a complete mystery in the allotted movie running time.
This movie builds this murder beautifully by showing the different points of views of the suspects. It has a different take than other movies since it gives the viewer a little too much details mid-movie which leaves you questioning everything to the last minute.
The acting was brilliant and I didn't feel the number of characters was overdoing it at any stage.
