Oh dear me.
The marketing for this film describes it in terms such as this, from IMDb.com:
A noir thriller told from the point of view of a femme fatale, who falls for the detective in charge of a murder case.
Well it’s not ‘noir’, Anna is not a ‘femme fatale’ and this is a good example of how the marketing people have misled potential audiences by souping-up the description.
Therefore it was hugely disappointing at the time and I tutted all the way home. Looking back a few days later, there is the essence of a good story in there about a fragile woman whose circumstances challenge her beyond what she can mentally endure, but noir it is not.
