Sex and love. Some seek it, some need it, some spurn it and some pay for it, but we're all involved in it. Set on one afternoon on Hampstead Heath, London, the film investigates the minutiae of seven couples. What makes us tick?
This series (shown as a 2-part series in NZ) was brilliant! The acting is performed well, but more than that, the story and the way in which it's told is fantastic.
Only minor bits of information, via each character's flashbacks, are revealed to the viewer throughout part one. We see how the guilt and the painful memory of the murder of their best friend/girlfriend/lover has affected their lives ten years later, and the panic and fear they feel when the case is reopened.
It's a well-thought-out adaption from a novel, and the performance delivered by each actor is brilliant. This is a wonderful story, dark and sinister as it may be, which kept me curious and alert to the end.
