What easily caught my attention was the music used during the film's entirety.  Aims to set the mood and shifts from classical and jazz to something climactic during the murder scene. Commendable performances by  the lead stars although Thuys the ex-con stood out for being cool, too cool indeed to be a hit man. Such a great contrast to Andrew, who, although he was not physically present during the killing was seen few times to be profusely sweating. There are light-hearted scenes, too, which viewers can find amusing. The actress who plays the role of Mary can't seem to conceal her smiles, even during serious scenes. There were some scenes where some of the actors are self-conscious.  Nevertheless this is an interesting film by director Van der Merwe.
