fascinating - many surprises!
22 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Excellent movie similar to Hitchcock's 'Strangers on a Train' and in some ways the more recent 'Rich Man's Wife,' this film is based on a 19th century novel and differs from these others in many respects. Lots of surprising twists and turns. Typical British style of filmmaking creates added mystery without the usual high-strung music. Its tongue-in-cheek humor makes it fun while still quite dark.
