Brillaint novel and even better movie
31 May 2001 | by (Marina del Rey, CA USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of Norman Winski's later works. It shows maturity, talent and unique creative style. I first saw it on MOVIE OF THE WEEK, and again. I enjoyed as much or even more the second time I saw it. there are little hidden manings everywhere.
