This kind of thriller is now a rarity. Conjured up vibes of the Bone Collector and Kiss the Girls. And even though I was not the biggest fan of those movies I still have a soft spot for their cumbersome and silly ways.
A tragic tale of a lost and distressed fish hunted down by an aquaphobic police chief, a disgraced oceanographer trying to regain some of his tarnished reputation and a nasty drunk with a fetish for bowlegged women. All of them egged on by a corrupt mayor trying to find someone or something to blame for his small islands dwindling tourist industry and his poor taste in fashion. I wish it had a happy ending, but they even go so far as to insult the fishes mother before finally commiting the coup de grace. Shameful stuff. Five stars.
