I simply can't understand ...
15 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

... why 'Breathless' garnered such poor reviews and such poor scoring on IMDb.

The direction was beautifully fluent, not a moment lost.

The plot line was perhaps a little crazy at times, but kept me guessing till the end.

The sets and the costumes were sumptuous to the eye ...

And the acting was superb. I was going to say, particularly from Jack Davenport as Otto and Catherine Steadman as Angela, but then I remembered how superb also were Natasha Little as Elizabeth, Oliver Chris as Truscott, Shaun Dingwall as Enderbury, Iain Glenn as Mulligan

  • not to speak of Joanna Page as the increasingly complex Lily


Enderbury. In fact, the acting and the script combined to create real people, characters of complexity, not the usual wooden-tops so often found in TV dramas.

And rather than meander on and on as so many serials like to do nowadays, the whole thing wound up beautifully in six episodes.

If there was any justice, 'Breathless' would top this year's BAFTAs list!
