I got the DVD as I am a great fan of Susan George, who normally is prepared to flaunt her excellent physique in many of her films (we see plenty of her in "Straw Dogs", A Strange Affair" etc.), but this film goes out of its way to totally keep her covered: even in the bubble bath she is wearing clothes under the foam!
The continuity is truly risible - for example, in the above bath scene, all the close ups show her dry and her breasts covered with the white bra, but longer shots show her covered in foam but the bra still visible under the bubbles! In another sequence they leave the airport in a black Mercedes registration number BA-99-77, but in the very next shot the car's registration plates have changed to 11-32-32. The make-up on her face to show that her half-sister has tortured her with a cigarette lighter is seen before the incident happens.
The plot, direction and lighting is all dire too. Fortunately I only bought the DVD secondhand very cheaply, as it was a total waste of money.
