Pars vite et reviens tard

Régis Wargnier France, 2007

Marc's rating of the film Have Mercy on Us All

There are references to characters you do not see, or see very little, and suggestions of insight into the mind and abilities of the lead detective that never come again. Feels like jumping in mid stream, probably meant for those who have read the novels. That said it is no worse than a standard serial murderer/detective drama set in a beautiful city. There is a baseline that it is difficult to fall beneath.
