One of the best novel-adaptations I've ever seen
14 August 2001 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

At first I was very sceptical about this movie, I'm a big fan of Nicci French and I wondered if the movie would capture the tension that makes the book so great. The answer is, it did.

Geraldine Somerville did a great job as Samantha, she's exactly like I had pictured her. You can almost feel her desperation in the climax of the movie. The other actors did great as well. The English landscape, the setting of the film, looks great, it really helps increasing the tension because it all looks so deserted.

I highly recommend this movie to everybody who has read the book (and to everybody who hasn't), because you won't be disappointed at all.
