Storyline

In World War II, the airman Toby Jugg is hit in the spine during an airborne attack and he becomes paraplegic. His aunt-in-law Julia Jugg is his only relative and sends him to rest in a clinic in the countryside. Toby is in love with Julia and writes several letters to her but she does not respond. Toby is haunted by shadows and bugs and Dr. Hal Burns, who is responsible for his treatment, complains that Toby does not open his feelings to him. One day, one intern goes to the town and brings a letter from Julia to Toby, and he finds that Dr. Burns is hiding his correspondence. When Julia is informed, she comes to the clinic to stay with Toby that seems to be mentally ill. One night, Dr. Burns gives a razor to Toby and tells him to do the right thing, trying to induce him to commit suicide. But late night Toby discovers the secret of Julia and Hal.

so bad it was funny
3 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

you never feel really connected with any of the characters. it was so boring i cant even remember much of it, all the dialog weighs the film down. i managed to sit through it once when i was ill but from about 10 minutes into the film i became distracted, you didn't feel in it like you do when reading the book.

Robert Pattinson tries so hard to convince us of his madness, so hard he looks more funny than sinister.

i attempted to watch it a second time with a friend but by the second half we had given up. i can now see why it was a freebie with another DVD i bought, don't waste your time watching it, read the book instead.
