The Deadly Trap

Film, Thrillers
0 Love It
Save it
A leisurely but cunningly paced story which starts off looking like a Woman's Own romance, and by the time it's finished has somehow involved you in domestic drama, murder, kidnapping and espionage intrigue. The ending has an impact similar to the punchline of a shaggy dog story, but the lead-up is always interesting thanks to Clément's nice Hitchcockian-flavoured style and deft use of menacingly 'ordinary' locations.
