Robert Altman's signature improv-y style works well here, in a frantic whodunit that features an ensemble cast that work together incredibly well. The script is razor-sharp and full of dark comedic moments and the film manages to explore deep caste themes, while still remaining an intriguing mystery.

There are instances, much like the popular Fanny & Alexander or The Last Picture Show since it's genre is similar, wherein the critics love a certain picture and is highly regarded. This film is one of them and unfortunately, it doesn't live-up to the praises due to the a loaded cast in which the direction floats back and forth to keep up with the events occurring from day to day, uninteresting plot and likable figures. A dreary pace just kills the interest of knowing who the murderer was. It was nice to see some talents and then unknown Clive Owen, Maggie Smith and Ryan Philippe. Score and set pieces were elegant. Best lines from the movie: "They do things differently there." "We all have something to hide." There are a myriad of directors who can direct, others unfortunately …
