Dreadful British A feature.
13 August 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It is alarming to find how awful the Brtish A feature could be at this time. Bracket this one with THE MAN IN GRAY and THE BROTHERS.

The makers appear to be totally oblivious to the disturbing implications of what they are putting on the screen. Michael Denison, with a mustache, offs a blond girl on Putney heath and swings for it. His brother (Denison clean shaven) is told by his mean sister Jayne Hilton who can't play tennis in her two piece on the family court any more since they've gone off in shame to the sea side, that he has the same bad blood and if he pairs with Mai Zetterling (the film's one involving character) that that minx will bring about his doom and sure enough...

Jaws drop at the combination of endorsing the values of the suburbs as represented by Sid James with a fruit basket of welcome and it's morbid pre-occupations, dead brother as a horror museum wax work.

Technical production is polished, despite the way the people stand awkwardly facing the camera and the unconvincing bomb site painted back cloth. The idea that this society was a model to be followed - one common in Australia remains scary.
