Great workmanlike entertainment
28 December 2003 | by (Surrey, England) – See all my reviews

Peter Vaughan, a wonderful actor, is the rather slimy insurance investigator investigating a claim in coastal Sussex.

And this unlikely hero succeeds where the Police have failed!

Made on a tiny budget, this film proves that enormous budgets are not always necessary to make good cinema.

Truly a minimalist marvel.
