Storyline

American producer James Boyce and his airhead wife Amber rent an English country mansion where the British horror flick "Smoke Rings" was filmed twenty years previous. Amber's mother was model-actress Mandy Mason, who died mysteriously after her appearance in "Smoke Rings." The property rental to Boyce was arranged by middle-aged lawyer Henry Harris, who continues to live with his lovesick memories of the late actress. Boyce invites Harris to dinner, and "Smoke Rings" airs on TV that same evening. During the following days, Harris observes Amber's schizophrenic behavior veering parallel to events once experienced by her mother and also to the movie's plotline.

Underwhelming
13 August 2002 | by (Bolton, England) – See all my reviews

One of Dennis Potter's final pieces, this is sadly a mediocre entry in his writing CV. Lots of his hallmarks are here, a blurring of fantasy and reality, a story about the way people can be imprisoned by their past and boiling desires held in check by English restraint until they grow poisonous. But ultimately the film has little more to say than that middle aged single men are often sexually frustrated. A good cast and glossy direction lend the film more weight than it really deserves. Strangely the film feels more like another writer trying to 'do a Potter' than a work by the man himself.
