A supernatural drama telling the story of three different families living in the same house in 1968, 1987 and the present day, linked by the spirit of the young daughter of the 1960s family, who drowned in mysterious circumstances.
This was presented in the US on Public Television's "Mystery" in three parts, which I taped and watched in one sitting. Amanda Burton is outstanding in a role which is slow to develop but full of passion. Overall, a great sense of drama and betrayal, filled with characters of no great physical beauty but considerable dimension. I did have some problems with the accents and dialog, although I generally have less difficulty with this than most Americans. While I thought I had sussed out the mystery, I found myself second guessing and the ending is a stunner. Certainly more demanding than most of the "Mystery" offerings, and maybe for a certain palate. Oh, and the lead detective is certainly unique.
