The Garden of Redemption (1997 TV Movie)
3/10
Better done in the '50's.
6 December 1998
This turgid, badly directed film is of a genre which was done so much better in the 1940's and '50's that you must ask: "Why did they bother?" It must have cost the usual millions - they would have done much more good if they had given to the Society for the Support of One Winged Butterflies or something. Boring.

9/10
Superbly acted and directed "internal" thought provoker.
20 November 1998
Ray Barrett is quite perfect: always a competent actor he rises to sublime heights here with his portrayal of a tortured soul caught in all the ghosts of his past. Brenda Blethyn was perhaps a surprise choice for the wife but handled the part very well. Richard Roxburgh gets better with every sighting and his versatility is astonishing. Otto was better than in the similarly dark "The Well" which I thought failed as a movie.
