Tedious and Depressing
20 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this film because it includes a performance by Sian Phillips (who is my goddess). I am sorry to say it is a pretty dreadful production all round - as gloomy and tedious as they come, with performances that for the most part can best be described as adequate. One notable exception is the portrayal of a fishmonger by Barbara Young (Sadie from the TV series "Family Affairs"); it is a very small role, but she plays it to perfection.

It may be worth mentioning, for the benefit of sensitive viewers, that toward the end of this film there is some quite horrific violence that seems wholly out of place in view of the preceding tone. I felt sickened - not because I am squeamish, but because I felt that this was a desperate attempt to enliven a terminally dreary story.
