Joe Cinque's Consolation
Directed by Sotiris Dounoukos
In late 1997 Anu Singh, a beautiful law-student in Canberra killed her boyfriend Joe Cinque after months of telling friends and colleagues she planned to kill herself and take him with her. Despite the warnings, no one stopped her. Joe Cinque's Consolation is the screen adaptation of Helen Garner's celebrated account of those events - a psychological crime drama that examines Joe and Anu's relationship and the circumstances that led to tragedy.

Couldn’t finish watching this highly stupid hypochondriac depressive girl blame all her problems on other people, demanding their compliance hurting others with no regard to the consequences. Who said life was easy? You have to give a good fight to stay in the ring, trying is the success doing nothing you get nothing. Doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure it out. And I know what it is to be knocked down. But you get up and do it again. Not sayin it’s easy but well sorry more power to you all that play the game with dignity and fair play.
How is it a "suicide pact" if one of the two never made a pact....question mark
Decent movie, appalling case. I cannot believe she only served four years and was able to earn degrees etc. Highly disturbing lack of justice.
