Format: VHS Tape
Emotionally wrenching, gripping, highly charged, yet thoroughly engaging film featuring the debut performance of Samantha Morton. Credit must also go to Carine Adler, the director who displayed a wonderful sense of restraint and pacing and was able to fully explore the complexities of Morton's character (as well as everyone else) without having to lapse into stereotype or broad-strokes. This film is everything a film such as "Girl Interrupted" wasn't. Quite simply, everyone is laid out in three dimensions and it's up to the audience to decide who is right or not. I was completely gripped by this film and left it feeling a sense of release and satisfaction to having witnessed it. Clearly, if directors like Adler continue their fine work, and actors like Samantha Morton (as likewise, the rest of the cast) continue doing projects like this, we're in for a very rewarding period of film making. Rita Tushingham is, as always, a pleasure to see work - although she has a small part, it is by no means wasted. Hers is a riveting presence and she sets the tone for the action to follow. This movie fairly bursts with energy while at the same time showing incredible restraint. In short, it is brilliant.

i recently saw this film on testerrial tv at 1 in the morning, and im glad i stayed up for it. the story follows two sisters who have recently lost their mother and the very different ways they deal with it. samantha morton's character decides to go on a number of short and violent affairs with a whole line of bastards, with dark but entertaining results.

Samantha Morton (Woody Allen's "Sweet and Lowdown" with Sean Penn) gives and mesmerizing performance about a woman who, unable to handle her mother's death, goes on a promiscuious sexual tirade with many anyonomous partners. Great Movie! Also stars Rita Tushingham, Claire Rushbrook and Stuart Townsend. A must see!

Saw this many years ago in a theatre. There was a lot going on at once, underneath the surface story and actions and I bought it because I really wanted to see it again. I found the intimate encounters intriguing. This particular tale of family crises was done well, nothing rehashed or old hat. The whole move had beautiful nuances of a time, a place, a family. A satisfying ending.
