More interesting than you'd think
1 May 2003 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I agree the movie is of its time - I love the fashions and the snobbery - it's not just Britain that has a class system! But I don't agree there's no suspense. The point of the movie is the claustrophobic atmosphere, it's actually a bit more subtle than you'd think from the blurb.
