But Kate Ashfield was equally wonderful. Amazing work from both of them. I will seek her work out in the future.
It's a familiar story which we've seen before in lots of bad movies. The performances are what elevate this. I do want to complain about the presentation. I know its not a Blu-Ray, but the colors on this disc are faded and washed out. It looks like a very old TV show from 20 years ago whose prints haven't been taken care of. Also, the DVD menu is amateurish. So, I am subtracting a star for the presentation, but not the performance.
A well acted and directed probably made for television as it was presented in 2 parts. Started rather a bit slow but this Psychological thriller developed very excitingly as the time passes. Suspence prevaled as the minutes passed. I have not read the original novel by the now established Nicci French from which the script was adapted.
I don't like to get inside the mind of this psychopath whose mysteries smile was full of venom, while showing innocence. I recommend that it. It is more than worth having this DVD in your library.
The quality of the transfer is very good as also the sound track. It has a very exciting finale after all the jealousy, greed and revenge not to mention the innocent deaths. Actors David Tennant (Casanova) and Kate Ashfield (Shaun of the Dead) in my opinion were great. Don't reviel the ending.
Even for a made for TV movie (which this was) it's crap quality on the picture. I was really disappointed.
