  • It's a drama with elements of black comedy and suspense, European in feeling but American in attitude. Just for fun, it's set in 1949, an era of glamour, of Hitchcock and of husbands even more clueless than they are today. show more

  • None of these elements quite come together, and while the clothes and props look authentic, the acting doesn't. show more

  • It's a sly little fable with at least six very obvious homages to Alfred Hitchcock thrillers, and a dark little heart that happily hides under a double-breasted suit. show more

    What a pleasant little gem. Feels like a modernized version of an old ********* movie. Everyone there is an excellent actor. The movie is well written and the characters fully developed. There were some truly surprising twists and turns. Very suspenseful. Go see it. You will not be disappointed.
