Well worth watching
from Haywards Heath
, 21 Feb 2004
This film is about three generations of the same family who work for the corectional services in the state penitentiary. They are responsible for death row and they take real pride in ensuring that their executions are carried out professionaly and with as much care and consideration for the victim as possible.
The story follows one execution and simultaneously follows the lives of those involved, the victim, the officers and the victims family.
By chance the man responsible for supervising the execution meets the victims wife afterwards and begins a relationship with her without realising the connection.
The acting is first rate and whilst the subject matter is grim, the story is fascinating. Halle Berry is particuarly good as the wife of the convict.
Good picture and sound quality and interesting extras make this a good disc to rent.
