This was one of the first movies to have a videotape made from the rushes' negatives instead of the normal rush print. The tapes were then edited into the finished movie. As there was no rush print cutting guide, the original negative was cut together using time codes that had been superimposed onto the rushes tape and converted by computer into cutting instructions.

Anthony Hopkins should stick to acting.
What a shame to see the excellent actor, Anthony Hopkins, make such an inept effort at directing. This movie is about a group of miserable Welsh gentry who have nothing better to do than make each other as unhappy as they know how. This is a sort of childish attempt to imitate "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe" with a larger cast. There is no character that seems like a real person (other than in an institution) and will bore most anyone to sleep. I watched to the end just to see if Hopkins would improve with experience. He didn't.
