review by
Mike Haberfelner

Brannigan (Danny Midwinter) is a shady club owner (or gangster hiding behind a club owner facade, whichever way one wants to put it) who's hell-bent of getting his hands on a certain patch of land owned by property dealer Clancy (Philip Brodie) - but since Clancy has no intention of selling, he threatens and bullies him - though only with moderate success. Then one day, McAvoy (Marc Bannerman), decorated war hero, is found dead on the very patch of land mentioned above, a killing that might or might not have to do with Brannigan's attempts to get the land. Jacob (Andre Nightingale) was McAvoy's best friend and McAvoy saved his life back when they served, so when he sees the police doing little in his murder, he decides to do a tiny bit of investigating on his own - and before he knows it he has picked up Brannigan's trail ... and got a job as his muscle and right hand man to Brannigan's rather violent right hand woman Tess (Victoria Hopkins). He also meets Brannigan's intimate friend, maybe lover Audrey (Andrea McLean), who just happens to be Clancy's couple therapist and who might have had an affair with McAvoy, which might have done him in. Anyways, she now has the hots for Jacob, but he remains strong out of loyalty (?) to Brannigan - but is that enough to keep the train from totally derailing?


A rather fascinating puzzle of a thriller that takes quite some joy in teasing and deceiving its audience - in the best possible way (and totally in tune with the theme of the film): Basically this is a genre movie that defies genre expectations to lead the viewer on a journey over uncharted territory that's yet within genre limitations. And that way, and also helped by a rather atmospheric directorial effort, it really manages to bring its quite complex story across and the audience at the edges of their seats at the same time.

Totally worth a watch!
