Very stylish and suspenseful Brit drama worth seeking out...
14 June 2002 | by windspraySee all my reviews

A taped version of this British television movie was sent to me from someone who knew I was a fan of one of the actors. All I can say is that this was a very uniquely directed and stylish thriller with the four leads absolutely believable in roles where three of them age about ten years. Again, the presentation of the story is very unique (and while at times gets on your nerves)which I guess is the point in creating the edgy, moody feel of this drama. It's disappointing though that quality British dramas of this kind will never make it to US television and that we are subjected to endless reruns of outdated dramas like Magnum PI, Murder She Wrote etc etc even on our supposedly better channels (and you know who you are)! If by chance you get to see this one, enjoy excellent performances by the always outstanding Liam Cunningham as Detective Armstrong. Kudos to the woman who played Joan Poole as this was a completely pathetic and unglamorous role and she just went with it creepily capturing the kind of girl that most everyone came in contact with at school. Very brave performance. And finally... the powers that be have allowed Jonathan Firth to come out of his period costumes and into current times (Hallelujah!!) You won't be disappointed as he does an excellent job of morphing from adolescence to adulthood without any trace of a bad make-up job. Just some minor changes and some good old-fashioned acting.
