a thought provoking- intriguing insight into the life of an ordinary woman
13 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought this piece of drama was very well played out by Billie if not a little shallow and quite a rushed performance, almost as if there was not quite enough time to enthral us into the passions of this 'chance affair', the blame for this would predominately lie with the director than Billie herself but then again, how deep can you get in 90mins? and would you want to? When all is said and done all the actors and actresses played their parts with minimal effort in my account as if it was almost too easier part to play - could this be in part owed to the story itself being a vague account of a romanticised memory open to suggestion - without enough knowledge into to the feelings of the individuals whose story she told. For example Craze's wife, (whose name escapes me) demonstrated perfectly the obliviousness to the situation and then from the and sudden discourse and disbelief of what she had discovered portrayed by her actions it was clear Craze could invoke deep passions in both of these women however for Betty the transition from timid housewife to passion filled obsession did not bode well for me as at first it was Craze with all the passion and energy and within 2 or 3 more encounters this turned 360 degrees to Betty behaving completely out of character! I just don't think there was enough alone time with the two main characters for Betty to have become so engrossed! Thought provoking though because why did a man who went out of his way to see her in the interim suddenly separate himself from the situation without any explanation not even a lie? was he really just out for sex? I hope part two is a little more in-depth!
