‘DO NO HARM’: A MYSTERY TO PLAY SOME MIND GAMES

June 4, 2021 No Comments

Though from a production company I’ve been seeing lots of TV films from of late, this film marches to a different drum. It follows Emily Edmunds (Deanna Russo), a deliriously happy almost married. Not only is her personal life making her happy, but so is her professional life. She’s on the rise as an up and coming fashion designer and she’s eager to see where her career will take her. Then, suddenly, her world shatters and after a suicide attempt, she spends six months in a mental facility under the care of Dr. Thorne (Lauren Holly).

When she’s finally better and discharged, Emily slowly re-enters normal life with a new job. What she does put off is dating again, especially when it comes to the interested Ian (Paul Greene) who she puts off more than once. Life soon gets scary again when suspicious things begin to happen.

Mysteries are something I watch a few (maybe?) too many off. More likely this is because my mother loves a good mystery. But where the Canadian production company Incendo is concerned, some of their titles are pretty good. Of the ones I’ve watched, this is another pretty good one. It’s less pulse-pounding suspense and instead tells a pretty even keel story until the final twenty minutes when it amps up the suspense factor. Until then, it’s a kind of mental chess game of who will move the final chess piece. It’s something that serves this story well.

The script is pretty good because it understands what it wants to do. Plus, the cast isn’t bad either. Russo gives just the right kind of innocent but wounded portrayal and if you don’t mind more of an adult film, Hallmark viewers will enjoy seeing Paul Greene. He’s quite different in this role, but I do like him as Ian. (There’s some REALLY sweet moments between his and Russo’s character.) There’s some back and forth in the relationships and some good moments within those. The best friend relationship is mostly good and honestly, I wish there were a bit more of a connection between the characters.

Like anything else from this company, Do No Harm isn’t bad. It’s interesting and that in my opinion, is half the battle.

Content: There is one sensual scene (some undressing, close body contact) before it cuts to the morning after. Someone murders a person in a coma (they place a pillow over their face) and another person drinks poison. Do No Harm is TV-14.
