M. 2000. In­ept, un­pleas­ant re­make of the Mike Hodges film that starred Michael Caine as a gang­ster out to avenge the death of his brother. Sylvester Stal­lone is mis­cast which throws the film off bal­ance, de­spite the strong sup­port­ing cast and icy cin­e­matog­ra­phy. Caine, mean­while, has a cameo role as a gang boss. Mi­randa Richard­son. 9.35pm, SBS TWO

M. 2009. A Scan­di­na­vian so­lu­tion any­way. Stina Ek­blad and Rolf Lass­gard’s mar­riage has lost its ap­peal, although there is still love. When he falls for the wife of his co­worker it presents prob­lems he pro­poses the four sort out in a so­phis­ti­cated way. Amus­ing four-han­der demon­strates that, in sex and mar­riage, lit­tle goes the way it is planned.
