Uniquely precise and scathing
15 March 2004 | by ginamalkeSee all my reviews

So many years after "Hollow Reed", also by talented director Angela Pope, I stumbled over this movie on cable tv. I could not believe what I was watching: such a precise and scathing description of what happens to you in a situation like this. The movie puts you into the heads of the two leading caracters and takes you with them through 3 nerve-racking days of waiting for test results. All this without hitting below the belt, with some stunning camera work, and Liam Neeson and Miranda Richardson glow with talent! Thanks to cable tv this wonderful small film will find its audience here in Argentina, as it should, because Liam Neeson's caracter teaches a class on the Argentinian dictatorship which then plays an important role in reaction to his personal tragedy...
