On the English coast, a mother (Vanessa Redgrave) and daughter (Susan George, STRAW DOGS) run a seaside hotel. They have an antagonistic love-hate relationship which is exacerbated by the arrival of an American (Cliff Robertson) who had been the mother's lover many years ago. Though it's an original screenplay (by Eric Bercovici and Reuben Bercovitch) written for the screen, this rather tedious talkfest comes across as a film version of a play. There are only three characters in the film with two very minor characters who could have been eliminated altogether. The obvious plot might have worked if the dialogue had been more stimulating but it's just yak yak yak and it doesn't go anywhere. Even the great Vanessa Redgrave is defeated, prove positive that not even the greatest actors can't always transform mediocre material into movie gold. The location (it was shot on the Dorset coast) is smartly shot by Arthur Ibbetson (WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY) and there's a nice score by John Cameron. Directed by Alan Bridges.

The Studio Canal DVD from Denmark is a decent full frame (1.33) transfer. I would guess its intended theatrical aspect ratio was around 1.78. It's in English with optional Danish, Swedish and Norwegian subtitles.

This is a film adaptation of the stage play about the relationships between a woman (Vanessa Redgrave), her old boyfriend who suddenly returns out of the blue (Cliff Robertson) and her daughter(Susan George) in an out of season boarding house.Despite Cliff Robertson's character bedding both women it's actually fairly boring and slow.
My point about the cover is that it shows the scene where George's character flashes the boyfriend on the stairs but is actually performed by a body double ( As is all of George's nudes scenes. Apparently she wasn't happy getting less money than Robertson and Redgrave) This may seem a petty point but the reluctance by George to do the nude scenes actually causes confusion in a pretty key scene in the movie.
Her character apparently seduces Robertson's character when she appears nude lying on a bed in his bedroom.The problem is her face is in shadow ( to hide the fact it is a body double), therefore we have no idea if its George or Redgrave in the bed.

Just one of the best films ever made. I have seen it many times over the years and still love it as much as the first time I saw it.
