Samuel Jackson is Abel, a black -tough as nails- cop, who is trying to cope with the recent death of his wife and raising his two children alone. A young mixed couple (black wife) moves nex door and tension starts to mount between neighbours. The reason behind the tension is the intolerance that Abel feels for what he deeply perceives as a "wrong" relationship between the married couple who has come to live next to him. What I find striking, and very well portrayed, is the contrast between the serious efforts made by the couple to befriend Abel, and the reaction to those efforts, which go in the opposite direction. Abel exudes "wrongness", paranoia, intolerance; he truly is alone, as his own kids detest him - still one cannot fail to feel for the loneliness of the character and the pain that can be seen seething through him. All the actions and reactions between the characters escalate towards an unforseeable finale, on the backdrop of a great bush fire that manaces to burn the entire neighbourhood. Very good performances from the actors involved, constant tension and deep characterization make this movie a pleasure to watch; it will leave you with a lot to think- or to discuss about- after watching it. The blue ray edition is good, with very crisp video quality and sound. I strongly recommend this movie.
