| nicely told tale in a small package
A lot of activity is squeezed into this tight 64 minutes. Howard is the cop who takes a chance to capture suspected killer Tafler. The story unfolds in a methodical manner with first little hints and then later more concrete evidence being presented. No real dramatic twists but the film does build in a way to maintain an interest. You are always one step ahead of the plot but the presentation adds an edge to the experience.

I like the way that a small cast and short running time gives a watchable drama. The makers could easily have added an extra 20 minutes of padding and added a few yawns along the way.

The short running time does resemble a TV drama so don't expect a blockbuster. However if you want to while away an hour this is a good choice.
