My partner was an extra!
20 April 2002 | by (SOUTHAMPTON ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

My partner and her mother were extras in this film , although she seems to think it was originally called "portrait of Hildgaard".It was filmed near to us at a place between Lepe Beach and Langly near Southampton England. The scene was filmed at a disused army camp.

If anyone has a copy of this film on VHS video we would be interested to hear from you.
