When one of the main things that stand out in a film is the architecture of the house in which it is set, that says something.
Branagh’s use of lighting tricks and unnecessarily controversial camera angles, to make the film feel less stagey, leaves Sleuth 2007 feeling very much a case of style over substance download sims mac.
