A good little film, with good acting and lots of suspense, but unfortunately it ends rather abruptly and almost unresolved. Not that issues in life itself are always resolved, but here it seems as if the writer was unsure of what to do with his characters. Had it been the female inspector's moral dilemma, the film as it stands might be the reality that she has to live with, but it's the ex-cop and the heart-surgeon who's stories are really important. Perhaps the POV should shift in which case it will be more satisfactory. Nevertheless, it's not a wasted hour or so with David Suchet proving he can be hard as nails and not only the charming Hercule Poirot. Jenny Agutter suits her character to a T and both Adrian Dunbar and Nadia-Cameron Blakely are very convincing. Max Brown is the surprise package. And the stately home is to die for...
