(Australia, 2001)

This is a superior whodunit that is more concerned with the psychology of its main characters than in solving the murder. Anthony LePaglia is a detective who is having issues surrounding his divorce and other things. His wife is seeing Barbara Hershey, a psychiatrist. There is tension between two neighboring households, and there are salsa dance lessons … and hell, maybe the dead woman wasn’t even murdered. Like I said, the mystery is secondary to the conflicts between all the characters. Co-starring are several Aussie actors you’ve never heard of, but are all worth seeing. It’s all very well done, good enough that when we discovered that I hadn’t reviewed it for some reason, we decided to watch it again. It’s worth it.
