aka ' A Row of Crows' in the uk
4 October 2002 | by merkredSee all my reviews

I really enjoy this film as its the kind of film I like where the pieces are gradually put together to reveal the answers but most of all I love the sound of the atmospheric music which is used and it always makes me mad when some twit of a continuity announcer talks over the end credits and the great music whenever it is shown on tv, which is an increasing tendency these days and has me spitting blood many a time. It should be banned and subject to a hefty fine every time its done. I feel better now I've got that off my chest:-)
