| Strangely charming
This movie's screen credits say it is based on the novel of the same name by Ed Kelleher and Harriette Vidal. This is true only to the extent that both feature a beautiful woman who is out to murder a group of men for a crime committed in the past. Do not look for a well-articulated plot or deep message here. Everything is subsidiary to the main character's drive for revenge; that being said, do look for good acting from a supporting cast of unknown Canadians, and lots of good location shooting which is all the more effective because of the film's minimal production values. All of this action looks very much like it could be taking place in your neighbourhood right now, featuring people very like your neighbours. Not everything is explained, but that is also how real life often is. All this gives it an impact which goes beyond its unpretentious style. (The original novel is also a good read, but, as I said, it has practically nothing to do with the movie.)
