Product Description

It's carnival time in Puerto Rico, but three young women have been found dead and the killer is still on the loose. Harry Hearst (Gene Hackman) is a rich and successful lawyer who discovers one of the bodies and is consequently asked by police chief Victor Benezet (Morgan Freeman) to help with his enquiries. However, Hearst soon finds himself being given the third degree by Detective Owen (Thomas Jane), who grills him over his private life and - in particular - his relationship with his young and very beautiful wife Chantal (Monica Bellucci), who is almost thirty years his junior. Soon a number of startling discoveries conspire to make Hearst the prime suspect in the murder case.


Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman star in Under Suspicion, a suspense-filled tale of interrogation--less of a whodunit than a did-he-do-it. Freeman plays Victor Benezet, a police captain investigating the murder of a child, and Hackman is Henry Hearst, a prominent lawyer and pillar of the community who also happens to be the prime suspect. Benezet and Hearst have a history together, and Benezet is torn between showing deference for an old friend and prominent community figure and ruthlessly pursuing a man he believes to be a child murderer. Director Stephen Hopkins spins multiple versions of the same events, popping details in and out as Hearst's story changes. Hopkins also uses the unusual and satisfying technique of juxtaposing the interview room with other locations, allowing Benezet to "follow" Hearst through his movements as he questions him. Under Suspicion also serves up the delicious eye candy of Puerto Rico during the St Sebastian festival, but the real treat is getting to watch two masters such as Hackman and Freeman square off. --Ali Davis, --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Did He Or Didn't He? 10 May 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
'Under Suspicion' takes an odd route in that most of the film is set in a police station interview room and you're almost thrown straight into the plot rather than sitting through an introduction to cover the back story of 2 school girls found dead and I think this helps as you have to pay attention from the off.
Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman are the film basically, while other characters, Thomas Jane ('Hung') as the cop on a leash and Monica Bellucci as Hackman's trophy wife are on the fringes at times and Bellucci seems slightly wooden to begin with but in the second half of the film she gets a 20 minute section where she really shines as the sultry suspicious wife.
It's hard to really get into the plot without spoiling it one way or another but basically, Harry Hearst (Hackman)-Did he or didn't he?

4.0 out of 5 stars Only human ... 18 Aug 2011
No one comes out of this completely untarnished in a film devoted to the frailty and imperfection of the human condition. Save for several flashback scenes it could easily have been a stage play as it relies heavily on the close, tense and often claustrophobic interactions of its heavyweight cast. Not always a comfortable experience but well worth the effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Movie lover 25 Aug 2011
Brilliant film great dialog and interactions between characters. Gene Hackman is brilliant in this film. Although it is about the murder and rape of two little girls the story unravels jealousy dysfuctional relationships deceipt and is totally compelling!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting film with some great performances 29 July 2011
I didn't know what to expect with this film as most of film is based in the police station it had the potential to be really boring but surprisingly was not. In fact I really enjoyed this film the performances by the two leads were excellent and the film kept me interested throughout I thought the twist was quite intriguing. I would recommend this film for those who enjoy psychological thrillers it also stars Monica Bellucci who looks incredibly hot in this film not necessarily one of her best performances but worth a watch just for her sheer sexiness!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is one to think about 3 May 2002
As one of the other reviewers remarked, a lot of questionmarks remain after the quite unexpected ending. I think it's part of the charm of the movie, personally I like films that have you think a bit further than the end credit.
If you're looking for action packed murder movies look elswhere, if you like to see a beautifull shot movie and see good character acting by actors who are doing a project they love to do, you won't regret bying this one...

5.0 out of 5 stars How could this be given one star? 20 May 2006
By Karoti
"Struggling torrid murder interview movie". That is so far off the mark, the story had me riveted throughout.

Brilliant acting, very well directed, with a gripping storyline and a twist in the tail... what more could you ask from a movie. Watch it.
