David farmbrough was so right
5 June 2006 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

Just seen this on BBC4

The previous reviewer was spot on, the "new" "soundtrack" started OK, a bit like Katurian's Gayaneh ballet suite which set the gray tone for the depressive backdrop of turn of the century industrial Lancashire. The two hour film then moved through many moods and scenes and yet still then same depressing dirge as in the first ten minutes. Maybe this was to preview some kind of fatalistic ending when the story curved back down to a point where it began, the effect was like watching the whole film though a wet dark cloud - an object lesson in why not to stretch a ten minute idea over two hours.

One to watch with the sound turned OFF.
