Christopher Plummer is always worth watching, and the cast of the film is more than respectable. It's in some ways a very grim story that teeters on the brink of horror before actually becoming horrific. The chase sequence, and subsequent gruesome discovery, is effective and horrible in equal measure. I regret to say that it left me feeling sad rather than satisfied, though I felt it was well acted (there are one or two exceptions to that rule) on the whole. I was left with the impression that the speed of the film did not succeed in convincing, and I wonder why it is that certain actresses appear (over and over) as utterly unsympathetic school teachers. A good enough movie, but not one I'll be keeping in my collection.
