★★★½ review by Matt Johnson on Letterboxd
A couple on a killing spree flees to the wild South African seacoast, security camera footage shows scenes of violence and crimes being committed, a high level government minister's daughter is killed on the eve of her marriage, and a couple of police detectives gather to try to make sense of it all. The two detectives do not get far in unraveling the different cases. Unfortunately, neither did I. The film is an edgy kaleidoscope of political intrigue, exotic landscapes and thrilling crime noir, yet it never is firing on all cylinders. Maybe it is one of the films that needs to be seen at least twice to be understood? There is potential here if it is organized better. Seen at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
