"Why see this when there is misery all around"
18 May 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

So said a woefully miscast Michael Dennison in this absolute shocker.he was talking about a crime film that Mai Zetterling wanted to see,and in view of the contents of this dreadful film are rather ironic words.The whole film is gloom and doom from beginning to end .the script is dreadful,direction lacklustre and not one actor of note in a really starry cast.It is little wonder that at this moment in time audience figures were beginning their precipitous drop to near extinction.The plot of this film beggars belief.Incidentally it is never explained how Zetterling and her sister both came to end up in an English seaside town.Were they the forerunners of IKEA?
