Although I already had a high opinion of Jessica Alba (on the basis of Dark Angel), this film made me revise it upwards quite a bit. It shows that she can do something quite different, in an excellent manner. From the moment she appeared, she held my attention in a firm grip. The other actors are well cast and do a good job. The only negative thing is a minor hole in the plot line: the final action of the commissioner's wife is out of character, a complete act of madness. I think that this could have been solved in another, more consistent way.
