she is a journalist trying to uncover the truth behind the breakup of a comedy duo, after they found a girl dead in their hotel room. though both had alibis n neither was accused, the truth of the incident finally surfaced when she got too involved with them. somehow, everything works n nothing works for the movie. it was presented in a storytelling way, where a male or female voice was heard throughout the film. i sat patiently, listening tentatively until the scrolling text that addressed the end of the film appeared. the scenes and costumes are elegantly beautiful, maybe in 1900+. but when the big picture cleared n every little details are revealed, there weren't much impressiveness in the plot as i hoped. kinda disappointing as the film did progress in a very interesting manner. won't really recommend the film, unless you enjoy literature kinda movie, which progress slowly n reveal the details bits by bits, n sitting through the anxiousness.
