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.
