A typically routine British quota quickie.
22 June 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Sad to say, this lackluster "B" was directed by George Pearson, one of Britain's greatest directors. It's just a routine melodrama with the usual hackneyed situations and uninspired dialogue. Whatever merit it achieves is not due to the flat, slack direction, but solely to the efforts of a far more deserving group of players.
