Well the first thing that struck me about the film, described as a thriller and with an 18 certificate, is how much humour there is in it.
The film starts with Benjamin Esposito, who is retired from the legal profession and trying to write the first paragraph of a novel. His creative vision is haunted by two things: an unsolved rape and murder of a beautiful young woman from 25 years ago and his long held but secret love for his boss Irene.
He visits Irene to test out his idea of writing a novel based on the murder and so begins a series of flash backs to the events that followed the crime. The boundaries between fiction and fact are as hazy as the witty repartee and put-downs between the co-workers within the legal profession are crackling.
