Movie Info

In this spoof of old-fashioned murder mysteries, Detective Tomas Hatcher of Scotland Yard (Martin Dejdar) is dispatched to Ravenscroft Manor to investigate the murder of Patrick (Matt Hantley), who has been working at the palatial estate as a stable boy. Hatcher quickly discovers nearly everyone has a secret, even Mr. Ravenscroft (Peter O'Toole), whose recent death doesn't stop him from making an occasional appearance around the house, often in very tasteful drag. It also seems that Patrick is very much missed by the women of the house, including Mrs. Ravenscroft (Greta Scacchi), her daughter Gillian (Laura Harris) and Gillian's governess (Gabrielle Anwar), all of whom were sleeping with Patrick at one time or another. Jealousy may be the killer's motivation, but given's Patrick's fondness for freely sharing his love, how do you narrow the suspects down to only one jealous party? Leading man Martin Dejdar also co-produced The Manor, which was the first Czech-financed film to be shot entirely in English; while little known in America, Dejdar is a major star in his native land.

Audience Reviews for Panstvi

This is a little gem of a film. I give it a 10+ Much better than GOSFORD PARK that won an OSCAR. A perios piece with a very dark sense of humor. Peter Otoole is of course fantastic, as always, and of course Gabrielle Anwar (BURN NOTICE & SCENT OF A WOMAN) and Martin Dejdar are good, but I think Greta Scacchi and Fay Masterson actually steal the film. The look and the scenery are lush and the tone is directed just right. Isabelle
