There is solid story behind this plot.As you know one of the classical premises of the Noir Films is that nobody is absolutely innocent. That is why many people are beaten by this circumstance.
The presence of the captivating and seductive Natasha Henstridge from the intial shots, coming to the Used Books Tent will open Pandora' box.
Through a very well articulated mechanism of dark loyalties and hard to believe solidarities, the viewer will be engaged progressively in this drama.
A personal tragedy, a love affair, several stolen millions, betrayal and passionate and complex web of facts and events will make of this film one of the most interesting movies in years that I 've seen.
I have not enjoyed a film noir so much since Blood Simple.
things get complicated when they both try to re-trace her life history. They find her apartment, and a sack full of cash as well inside it. He soon suspects that she is hiding something, but he has secrets of his own..
personal comments: I'm a fan of Natasha Henstridge, so I'm a little biased in favor of this film. Having said that, the plot twists and turns keep the viewer guessing, and a brief appearance by Peter Fonda adds to the quality of the film.
The plot has a few interesting twists, but the dialogue is banal and many of the scenes drag. However, for a film made on a $3.5 Million budget, director Darrell Roodt delivers some excellent photography and shows himself to be talented at creating powerful imagery.
If there are two things that stand out from this film, they are the talents of Roodt and Henstridge. Roodt gives the images style and richness with interesting perspective shots and a number of beautiful location shots. I'd like to see him get a more prominent project where he can put his talents to work. Natasha Henstridge carries the film with an excellent performance that should portend a shot at meatier roles in the future. Her striking appearance and superior acting ability is made even more obvious playing against journeyman Angus MacFadyen, whose performance here helps validate his relegation to supporting roles throughout his career.Read more ›

Henstridge is the best thing in this. Angus Mc-whats-his-name is atrociously bad. Mind numbingly, indescribably terrible. Read morePublished on June 15, 2001
