Murder mystery set in a 1920's French château.
2 April 2003 | by (victoria, bc) – See all my reviews

This excellent murder mystery starring Malcolm McDowell and Eileen Atkins as the cruel and evil Vanity Fair, is a wonderful way to escape for a couple of hours. The story is based on the novel by Dornford Yates which in some respects is very different from the film version. Although keeping to the general sense and feel of the book, the film version actually is more exciting. Set in the Pryennes in the 1920's this film is full of lively performances and the good story and great scenery makes this story come to life. My only question is, why is it not available on video or DVD! Other stars include Micheal Jayston and Karen Dotrice (the little girl in Mary Poppins).
