COMMENTS: The material contains strong impact complex and mature themes which are presented in a context of a crime drama. Themes explore the life of a low income family living in poverty engaging in an illegal activity to survive. The family is involved in forgery, working as a syndicate infiltrating the house of an affluent family, being con artists, kidnapping, foul play, trespassing, undisclosed identity, sabotage, betrayal, manipulation, lies, greed, guilt, regret, murder, deceit, revenge and teamwork. Themes of murder, fraud, manipulation, deceit and revenge are negative, laced with dark undertones likely to be psychologically disturbing, distressing, upsetting, misleading and morally harmful to the cognitive development of children under 16 years. The film does not communicate clear positive resolutions because the perpetrators never get arrested and some are left dead but the overall positive message is that crime does not pay.
