I stumbled across this excellent movie on late-night Canadian television, and I was simply blown away. I'm so glad I was able to record it because I learned later it has only rarely been shown in Canada, has never been shown on TV or anywhere in America, is not on DVD or VHS, and not likely to be released in those formats either. I showed this film to a friend of mine who is involved in the movie industry and he was so impressed he contacted the producers to try to buy the rights to release it on the film festival circuit and then put it out on DVD and he gave up because they showed absolutely zero interest in it. I fear this is one superb movie destined to be seen by very few people, which is a shame. It is among the very best gay-themed films I have ever seen. Based upon a mystery novel, it has many unpredictable twists and turns, is beautifully and professionally photographed, and the acting is great. It leaves you on the edge of your seat.
