Alex Cox's adaptation of Jorge Luis Borges' fantasy crime thriller. Lonnrot (Peter Boyle) is a great detective in the Sherlock Holmes mould. He is on the trail of the notorious Red Sharlach (Christoper Eccleston) and will stop at nothing to bring him to justice. But when he finally tracks the villain down to the Villa Triste-Le-Roy, what he encounters there will tax his celebrated reasoning power to the very limit.
