Aro Favourite Staircase, The (TV Mini-series)


aka: Soupcons
France / USA 2004, 513 minutes
Dir. Jean-Xavier de Lestrade
Rating: [M]
Genres: Television, Documentary / Courtroom


Aroview: Fascinating and ambiguous documentary mini-series tracks in detail the trial of a North Carolina man accused of murdering his wife, who was found dead after apparently falling down a staircase.

With the accused gradually revealed to be a compelling mix of secrets and passions - Vietnam veteran, proud family man, patron of gay prostitutes, military fetishist - this mainly documents the intense efforts of the defence team to vindicate their client. With bizarre moments and revelations aplenty, its a must for fans of gripping courtroom drama. 8 episodes over 3 discs.
