4 out of 5 people found the following review useful.
Controversial, atmospheric drama, 17 November 1999
Author: Dodger-9 from York

Denis Lawson is on good form in this controversial, atmospheric drama that starts off well, piques the interest with some sexy characters, and then descends into something of a mess. Notorious as it comes from the same man who directed the controversial play Romans in Britain, its good cast manage to keep you watching long after the on screen drama has fizzled out.
