Editorial Reviews

Tired of her husband's philanderous ways, the mother of two daughters drowns her husband. With the reluctant help of the local coroner, the murder is obscured. Her daughters are having similar problems with relationships, and tend to follow their mother's example, and the coroner becomes reluctantly duplicitous. As the plot progresses, visual and spoken numbers appear in the scenes, counting from one to 100. This film was the first theatrical feature to be broadcast on Masterpiece Theatre on PBS.

The master for this film has been retrieved from Film4 library's extensive archive. The film was originally mastered for playback on the VHS machines and the standard definition televisions of the time. The quality will not be as good as a film which has been digitally re-mastered to be shown on high definition wide screens. We have opened up our archive, in order that films which might not otherwise be on release on any format, are available for dedicated film enthusiasts who want the opportunity to watch them.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
