British at its best
8 June 2003 | by (Cape Town) – See all my reviews

I have to say that I enjoyed this one. I didn't expect much as it was one of those movies you stumble upon when zapping through the channels.

It was made for TV and that suits it just fine, with a style that resembles the contemporary British TV-dram, e.g. "Inspector Morse" (which is based around Oxford) and "A Touch of Frost".

The plot contains some neat twists here and there, but what makes it stand out from the crowd is the acting. Basically the entire cast does a terrific job, and even Andrew McCarthy (best known for "Weekend at Bernie's", I guess) is good.

However, Stephen Fry has to be singled out, as this is a far cry from the comedies he is known for - and he pulls it off effortlessly (a comment you will better understand after the movie).
