Movie Info

Jane appears to be ideal: attractive, intelligent, unruffled by her employer's abrupt eccentricities. But, gradually, we come aware that Jane has another agenda. Incrementally, Sir Paul's familiar surroundings are altered. His housekeeper is diverted away, strange things happen around the house and he becomes increasingly dependent on his new assistant. Jane plays increasingly sadistic games until their relationship breaks down and it becomes clear that Jane intends to kill Sir Paul. Paul grasps this too late to save himself, but the plot carries further savage twists before it reaches its conclusion. -- (C) Official Site

It's like turning on a lamp in a room that looked just fine by candlelight.

Top Critic

With its unlovely DV aesthetic and cheesy midi-synth score, the film has clearly been put together on the cheap. Yet it's also severely lacking in the fundamentals.

Time Out
Top Critic

Conti, an actor as sturdily reliable as a Volvo, delivers a brittle, curmudgeonly turn, but the story's stiff and the denouement as ordinary as a piece of A4.

Empire Magazine

A Closed Book is directed by Raoul Ruiz, a "revered member of the European avant-garde" who decided to tackle "the Anglo-Saxon tradition" - with execrable results.

Times (UK)

Eccentric Chilean director Raoul Ruiz has rifled through the Hammer bag of horror tricks and come up with a relentlessly silly, oddly diverting yarn.
