- Finesse Movie Reviews
i thought the final shot twist was kind of clever, but having to go thru this terrible of a movie just to get to that twist is NOT worth it. turns out the girl that the husband is leaving her for is the same girl she is having an affair with, we just assumed it was a man based on her getting calls and text messages. it gave me a few goosebumps thinking back on the rest of the movie and is the ONLY reason this didn't get a half star rating.
Filmed in black-and-white, the running time is short - just over an hour. The emphasis is on the characters and the dialogue with less-than-realistic home-and-garden scenery straight from an Agatha Christie stage play.
The invitees know each other so well that the sharp wit does not offend too deeply. Eccentricity is rife with characters behaving outrageously and the ensemble of seven actors over-acting like crazy.
I found it highly entertaining and thoroughly enjoyed it.
