yawn!
24 October 2002 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

a pseudo, worthless load of tosh about a group of english toffs (and one yank) who are all having their wicked way with each other; infidelity wise. this self satisfied adaptation from a better novel by iris murdoch was more enjoyable mainly because it worked better in it's original literature format while this dreary exercise comes over like a tired party piece and a mite dated. read the book instead.
