Jack Higgins can write.
4 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

The script by Jack Higgins elevates this movie about the mundane. Good cinematography and lush Irish back drop add to the movie's qualities. Keith and Valentina do a good job of acting, but Robert Lindsay's performance is worth the look.
