However, once the camera changes to a position inside the home, he is shown on the opposite (left) side of the window. The camera then shifts to show the family, and when Matt is almost caught for making a noise he is back on the original (right) side of the window again. See more »
This gimmicky thriller about redemptive guilt is too flashy for it's own good.
This German-financed, low-budget thriller is undermined by a listless script and annoying slickness in the editing. The lackluster performances don't help and when all is said and done, it's really just a public-interest morality play. A flash in the pan for late-night cable viewers.
