Laura Quinn is a bright and talented executive at the London Diamond Corporation in the 1960s who sees man after man being promoted over her despite her greater experience. The nighttime janitor, Mr. Hobbs, has noticed Laura’s frustration and when he finds out that the men at the top of the company are planning to get her out (just because she’s a woman) he contacts her with a daring plan for a diamond heist…
Sound and Vision:
The image quality is pretty decent and exactly what you would expect. Nothing special but certainly not bad either. Level of detail and contrast are good and there are no obnoxious compression errors.
The sound comes with a Dolby Digital and DTS track. Both sound nice and detailed but due to the nature of the movie (lack of action) it might have been a better idea to drop the DTS track and maybe see if adding some extras would have been a possibility
Flawless is a small movie but with a couple of big names attached to it. As such it has its own charm that’s perfectly portrayed by Michael Caine and Demi Moore who give an excellent feel of how it must have been in the UK during the 60.
Despite being a thriller, the movie relies more on atmosphere than tension or action but manages superbly to keep the viewer interested. It may not be such a high profile movie but just like a hi-priced jewel with a diamond inside, it only comes out for those that can appreciate its beauty.
A nice addition to your collection eventhough it may not be the first title you would talk about when telling about all the movies you have.
