What an incredibly refreshing film. It was just simply wonderful. Beautiful cinematography, outstanding performances, hilariously dark script. The perfect whodunit with just the perfect amount of wit. Gabrielle Anwar is spellbinding as the icy governess, and Greta Scacchi gives a breakthrough performance; I'd never seen her do comedy and she was simply brilliant. Peter O'Toole was chilling and tremendous, a great part for him. Laura Harris was excellent as the demented daughter of the manor, and Fay Masterson and Edie McClurg played the servant duo with absolute perfection. If you like, comedy, drama, or suspense this is a must-see, it's really a pity that this was not released in America. ****!
