The Two Faces Of January
It is Greece in 1962 and an American couple is touring the Parthenon when they cross paths with a young American tour guide. Both the couple and the tour guide seem to be engaging in dubious activities and events conspire to draw them inextricably together.
'The Two Faces Of January' is an Alfred Hitchcock style mystery/thriller based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith.
This competent film maintained my interest throughout its various twists and turns but it is a pity that it doesn't have the decisive killer punch ending that could have elevated it to a classic.
