A political yarn - sometimes creepy, sometimes daft - in the Hitchcockian vein.
A ripping, old-school conspiracy thriller.
Despite a few convincing turns, the feature is disappointingly winded, eventually going off on a few needless tangents that derail the whole production.
An enjoyable conspiracy thriller in the manner of John Frankenheimer's Seven Days in May.
Not glorious. Not good. Just plain old-fashioned duff.
Prestigious and serious-minded, but it's still nonsense.
Stupendous turn from Romola Garai in the lead role but, while this sets up intrigue and atmosphere well, the plot devices creak audibly towards the end.
Poliakoff's flaccid script and indulgent cut undermines a beautifully shot thriller with an excellent cast and original central idea.
For all its sumptuous production design, Steven Poliakoff's tale of glamorous toffs and treason is so laboured and slow that it's practically pensionable.
A bizarrely tasteless pet-euthanasia subplot -- clumsy parallels with the Holocaust abound -- is merely the wackiest turn the wildly unconvincing script takes: it's well below Poliakoff's more intelligent TV work.
Trapped in a perilous zone between TV and cinema, this wartime conspiracy thriller ploughs through an improbable plot with all the urgency of a snail going through wet concrete.
Unfortunately, Stephen Poliakoff's tale of wartime skulduggery should have stayed on paper. The sort you can flush. Tedious, overlong and laughably unconvincing, the only remarkable thing about it is Bill Nighy's performance. Specifically, how bad it is.
Odd movie. I didn't really understand what the point of it all was..
A woman uncovers a conspiracy involving her adopting family during the start of the Second World War.
It's always fun to watch Bill Nighy do anything; I'd probably pay to see a film of him reading the phone book, but even Nighy can't save this film. The plot is quite predictable, and some of the conflicts remind me of my complaints about A Room with a View - banal, upperclass issues made into plot points. Also, Romola Garai does not make for a convincing thriller protagonist. She doesn't seem clever enough to figure out the film's plot, and the moments when the film forces her to "be suspenseful" fail because she doesn't seem to raise the stakes of her performance.
Overall, a bad performance by the lead combines to create a film that makes no sense as a thriller.
This movie demonstrates the lengths some will go in the name of "what's best" for the country (whatever that country may be). Well acted but the pace is way too slow! The end was such a large dose of cheese, I feel to could constipate many!
Set in beautiful surroundings this conspiracy thriller has many fine moments but is a little long winded which lessens the considerable tension it manages to build at points. All the performances are good the two standouts being Romola Garai in the lead and Julie Christie who plays an atypical role with silky malevolence.
