Reviews

In 1880s Cuba, plantation owner Luis Vargas (Antonio Banderas) hires private investigator Walter Downs (Thomas Jane) to help him track down his runaway wife Julia (Angelina Jolie). When he finds her, he discovers that he cannot shoot her as planned and is soon persuaded to forget his grievances and join her in a card-sharping scheme. However, Julia continues to negotiate with her mysterious accomplice Billy, leaving Luis in a precarious position. Based on the novel 'Waltz Into Darkness' by Cornell Woolrich, which was formerly filmed by Francois Truffaut under the title 'Mississippi Mermaid' (1969).

Format: DVD
Slow to start, slow moving, and a touch contrived in the manner in which it tries to establish a picture of a happy, suburban family in a happy, suburban environment, but this is a competent, made for TV movie. It'll offer light entertainment, not inspiring viewing or riveting drama.

So, take an ordinary family - he's a competent young architect, establishing a sound local reputation, she's a doting mother and teacher. They have a young son, they are good family people, with good neighbours, good church connections, good prospects - the sort of American family that could be used as a yardstick to make the Simpsons look dysfunctional. Yes, they're that goody-goody - they look about as real and as natural as the hairstyles and wigs which will dance across your screen in the course of this film.

Then somebody abducts their child. They try to cope. They cooperate with the police, they do everything they can to trace the boy. But one of them has a secret.

A drama rather than a thriller, it can be slow moving at times, predictable at others; there are times when the annoying background music becomes the most dynamic thing happening. The acting is generally good - Ann Jillian is especially convincing in the role of distraught mother. Camera work and lighting are limited, and direction is sparse - it's a very middle-of-the-road, made for TV, don't do anything to frighten the horses, cliche-ridden production, with no great surprises, no originality, everything too neat and tidy, everything tied to the demands of TV advertising.

A competent production which doesn't get above average and which won't get your pulse racing.

The Amazon page gives the wrong caption .The photo of the product does not match the write up of the film underneath. I ordered from the write up not from the photo so got the wrong dvd.

Review of Original Sin 28 Aug. 2013

I had seen this movie before and enjoyed it. Therefore, I had to find it on DVD. Chartom Heston and Ann Jillian were great in this movie.

Excellent film! I enjoyed it. Heston and Jillian are great here! 21 Dec. 2013
By UniversityDoc - Published on Amazon.com
Ann Jillian's character discovers that her husband isn't exactly who he says he is. She finds out that he is actually the son of a mafiaoso. when they're son is kidnapped, they are forced to seek out his father's help (portrayed by Charlton Heston.) Nice twist to things here.
Heston and Jillian give great performances in this originally aired TV movie.
