5.0 out of 5 stars very creepy, 18 May 2008
I found this after seeing a clip of possibly the most terrifying (yet strangely attractive) thing David Tennant says in this, you'll know it when you get there.

Brilliantly acted by all, it was gripping and unexpected; you really feel for her as her life begins to fall apart around her. David Tennant was fab as always, very creepy, particularly as he appears as crazy, but also extremely clever and vindictive.

I really enjoyed it, watch it if it sounds like its for you.

The film centres around Justin Qualye, an english diplomat who takes up his activist wife's quest, abandoning his 'keep our activites seperate' 'loyalty to the governement' and generally stiff upper lip attitude. His passion for his wife, Tessa, does not die with her, but is shown in his search for her killers and in finishing the cause that she died for. The film is good, with a more satisfying finish than the book, which stops a bit short, the funeral scene is a good way to close. I strongly recommend reading the book as the plot is strong and the parts… Read more
