I really wanted this to be a good period drama/mystery. Instead it was just bafflingly bad. The story line was weak and erratic, the characters poorly constructed and the acting mediocre. It could have been saved by great costumes, but they were over the top odd. Really wouldn't recommend it – barely got through it!
Extravagant costumes, a twisting plot, elegantly barbed dialogue and a mesmerising score by Michael Nyman make this witty, stylised, erotic country house murder mystery a treat for ear, eye and mind.
