The best kept secret in film history?
9 March 2001 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

This film made a deep impact in me when I saw it on TV some years ago. That it seems to be completely unrecognized is a puzzle to me. Maybe it's got something to do with it's lacking of humor, which so often characterize British films dealing with tragic issues.
