The last time I saw A Perfect Murder I was around 13 or 14 years old and I watched it a couple of times at that time. I caught it on tv and I couldn't resist because I know that I really loved it back then.

After 10 years I still enjoyed watching it. I remembered most of the things but it was still suspenseful and full of twists and turns, although it loses a bit of tension and gets a little messy in the final part. The thing that I remembered less was the ending, which if I enjoyed it years ago (I don't remember but I probably did) this time I didn't like it so much.
The acting is very strong. Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow and Viggo Mortensen did a great job.

I discovered that this is a remake of an Hitchcock film, Dial M for Murder, I really need to check it soon.
