painfully perceptive and scarily gripping
13 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought this was wonderful. It was that rare thing, a completely successful thriller - disturbing, gripping, and by the end really edge-of-the-seat stuff - that also managed to be psychologically complex. It was about an ex-husband (happily remarried to the statutory younger woman) who seems to have an ideal relationship with his ex-wife

  • to the extent that he even goes on holiday with his ex and their two


young kids. He's the perfect 21st century liberal divorced father....Until that his ex-wife meets another man, when jealousy starts to kick in. And we see the caring ex-husband and father gradually becoming obsessed both with his ex-wife and her new bloke, and trying to turn her against him. And maybe he has a point - because she met him on the internet and knows very little about him....So is the ex-husband's obsession justified? After all, he needs to protect his kids from this stranger- and also his ex-wife....

The gradual tightening of tension is done with complete psychological conviction, and a painful - and painfully common - contemporary situation is pushed into highly disturbing, nightmarish territory.

It's so good it should be made into a movie instantly!!!
