I Loved It
15 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

We sat around as a family and watched this masterful drama and the slow unravelling of the victims and the criminal.

The acting was superb and the entire show was put together with consummate craft and care.

It tickled parts of me that were difficult to reach and had a mordant suffocating creepiness as the characters justified their sad lives and the actions they performed within the drama.

The music was soft and well scored and provided a subtle carriage for the visuals.

All in all SWEET!
