LEIGH PAATSCH OUT OF THE BOX

THE OTHER MAN, Chan­nel 9, 9.30pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Saturday -

AS this un­con­ven­tional ro­man­tic drama be­gins, sure-footed busi­ness­man Peter (Liam Nee­son) has been given the boot by his shoe-de­signer wife Lisa (Laura Lin­ney). With­out be­ing given a sin­gle rea­son. If the dumpee wants any an­swers from the dumper, he will have to be pa­tient, fo­cused and, above all else, pre­pared to find out the worst. And so, our heartbroken hero makes tracks to Italy, where he in­tends to con­front the man he holds re­spon­si­ble for ru­in­ing his life (An­to­nio Ban­deras). A frag­mented nar­ra­tive keeps the real emo­tional im­pact from ever truly kick­ing in, but works well enough as a cu­rios­ity piece.
