I stumbled across this Australian production starring Guy Pearce.
Thais rhriller detective story is terrific. It moves from the comic ( the lads at the bar ) to the romantic to the tragic and the frightening suspense effortlessly. it is a terrific piece of entertainment.
The source is the novels by Peter Temple. Pearce is terrific. Marta Dusseldorp is wonderful. Every character seems rounded, well played and helps move along the plot well and truly.
