Is it a comedy?
2 April 2011 | by jdgraphoSee all my reviews

I absolutely love She Devil and Patricia Hodge and bought this thinking I would be in for a treat. How disappointing. I just didn't feel drawn in to this strange world with its unrealistic characters.

The clones seemed ridiculous cardboard things and May himself seemed to be hamming up his performance. Patricia Hodge was convincing as Joanna but all the other characters, including the detective played by the absolutely wonderful Billie Whitelaw, were plain silly, like Carry On stereotypes.

I wondered, towards the end, whether it's supposed to be a comedy rather than a chilling drama. I shan't bother to keep it on my shelf with my other dvds as I shan't watch it ever again.
