Paul for his part likes to spend her money and indulges his interests in modern art. They hold frequent parties and play their games. Into their lives appears Lisa Schindler, a door to door saleswoman. They decide to play one of their practical jokes on the grocery delivery man, Norman, where a supposedly jealous Paul accuses him of making advances to Jennifer, He shoots him twice - with blanks - and everyone has a laugh but the third shot kills him. In the days following his death Jennifer begins to hear noises in the house and seeing shadowy figures at the end of dark hallways. Is it all a game? Written by garykmcd

Playing games on each other in the manner of "Sleuth"
11 March 2003 | by manuel-pestalozziSee all my reviews

This film reminds me of "Sleuth", the movie based on a play by Anthony Shaffer released in 1972. Like in "Sleuth", people play games on each other and do not reveal their alliances, their true intentions or their true self. The story is acted like in a theatre play. The sets, representing a New York town house in a prosperous neighbourhood, are nicely done and give a vivid impression of the middle sixties' trends in fashion design and interior decorating - again you can compare it with the lavish set and the different costumes used by the protagonists in "Sleuth". For once, James Caan plays a slick urbanite, and he does it quite well. Don Stroud has a small part, a good actor whose screen presence and performance are always memorable. And then there is Simone Signoret ... as always she is absolutely riveting, and she puts a lot of charm in her rather pityful character. She uses her French accent very much to her advantage! "Games" is an elegant, suspenseful thriller for people who like to see a play now and then. Only right at the end you will know who has won!
