Embarrassing for the actors and the viewers...
14 October 2008 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

I tried hard to like this because I liked the players, but the dreadful script, the annoying characters and the deathly depressing location shooting made it very hard work. I stuck around for the occasional glimpses of the beautiful face of 'Millicent' but they were too few and the annoyances of every other aspect of this TV flick were too many. The movie was made in 2002 but you get the feel that it was actually made in the mid seventies. Every clichéd line ever written ('Oh, you mustn't think like that!' or 'Money? This isn't about money?') is mercilessly played out here. Lot's of outrageously unreal scenes and some fools playing detective. John Hurt is more over the top than Dustin Hoffman.
