When their mother dies, two sisters inherit more than they bargained for...
17 July 2006 | by rmckenzi-2See all my reviews

With such a wonderful cast I was looking forward to this movie, which didn't disappoint as it started. By half way, the story was set up perfectly, the setting was delightful and the flash backs were well done. Then towards the end, the story began to blunder along like a psychotic drunk, throwing in stunning revelations that were never explained or concluded. Perhaps realising they were out of time, the filmmaker attempted to wrap up the story well before it was finished. By the closing credits it was a very silly movie indeed. The only miracle was that it was put to air. The excellent actors deserve much better fare.
