Quotes

Reggie Conyngham-Jervis: What did you tell her? What did you say to her?
Roy Southgate: Your nephew would have told her if I hadn't. She would have had to find out sooner or later. Only fair she should know. I mean, it's true, isn't it, about the house and that.
Reggie Conyngham-Jervis: Of course it's bloody well true, you bloody idiot, but you didn't have to spill the beans! She's gone now. Left me. Thanks to you, gone abroad. My last chance at happiness!
Roy Southgate: Perhaps you're better off without her. I mean, she was only after you because she thought you were rich...

An enriching experience
11 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

I was tired and did not expect to stay with this movie, but thought I'd see how it began. The story and the absolutely wonderful performances by Finney and Courtenay kept me absorbed in it till it was all over. This quiet movie was, unexpectedly, to be one of my all-time favorites.
