haunting
27 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

I have seen this twice, and only on television but found it haunting in the same way as The Vanishing, or Passager de la pluie - I just can't forget it. The revenge element is not so strong as the mystery, and of course the three leads are enthralling, convincing actors. One I would dearly love to see again because it stays in my memory like a tune you can't get out of your head.
