Fairly pointless
25 November 2019 | by Good-WillSee all my reviews

Great sets and it captures the atmosphere of Prague in that era to perfection. But what was the point of it? There weren't many sympathetic characters apart from the wife, and although the plot twisted and turned a lot, which I liked, then by the end scene I felt let down and a bit baffled by what the producers were trying to achieve. As a "slice of life" type of production then it worked to a degree, but it could have been so much better with less characters and more background details. Above average so 6/10.
