A dark and taut thriller.
12 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found the taut atmosphere of this film, present from the very outset, set the scene perfectly for the dark content of the film. Although obviously shot on a relatively low budget, I found that the tension kept me uneasy throughout.

Mirren's performance as the uncertain housewife becomes all the more intriguing when the characters history of mental illness is revealed. This leads to a real conflict between her and her husband, and the viewer is never sure who to side with.

Overall I think this is a great bit of British cinema, and for tension and a realistic darkness, matches any Hollywood blockbuster.
