rent it, where?
17 December 2005 | by lesmoviesSee all my reviews

Excellent movie but can't be had in NTSC. IT's in PAL only, right. I saw it on i offer dot com . The movie is a good one. Shows though how selfish and childish the one character is, and also the husband. The wife seems to be the only one with any sense at all. Will have to read the book. No, didn't know the actress in this came out. Very interesting....makes one wonder if an actress/actor can be typecast after doing a movie. Or, makes one wonder if they did the movie so well, was it really acting? The British really have made so very many good movies like this one......Tipping the velvet and Fingersmith are both great ones to go along with this one. And oh, Portrait of a Marriage, if it can be found.
