This is not a film I had heard much about, it not being one of the 'classic' Hitchcock movies. It is, in fact, the last movie made by Hitchcock and because of this, benefits from several decades of knowledge and experience. The plot, which is intricate to say the least, revolves around two sets of characters whose lives are inextricably intwined, although they don't realise it until near the end. The film is cleverly structured and beautifully acted by all the main characters. The direction is of course wonderful, with the aerial graveyard scene getting my vote as the best scene of the movie. The DVD comes with the original trailers for the film and an interesting documentary which, unlike some of the so called documentaries in these films, actually tells you something you might like to know, rather than just playing back parts of the film you have just watched! Excellent!
