Dark and enticing ...
19 March 2001 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A very sexy as well as chilling piece concerning the mind and mystery. A mild housewife discovers a man who claims to be her long-lost son and welcomes him into her home, only to doubt his convictions and seemingly place herself in what appears to be a position of danger. A clever twist concludes this brilliant U.K. TV movie.
