Entirely watchable (if uneven) drama about a man who suspects his wife of adultery, and decides to track down and murder “the other man” in her life. Liam Neeson is in fine form as the jealous husband, and Antonio Banderas is equally good as his rival. But the film’s main problem is that it never reaches a satisfying conclusion, and leaves us wanting more. Too bad, especially when the cast is so good. Barely released in theatres (for unknown reasons), but still worth checking out. Written and directed by Richard Eyre (“Notes On a Scandal”, “Iris”…).
Fub fact: Laura Linney replaced Juliette Binoche in the role of Neeson’s wife lisa.
