This adaptation of Ford Madox Ford's classic novel provides a look at the duplicity that lies beneath the calm surface of a comfortable marriage. Two couples--one British, the other American--meet at a German spa. They form a pleasant friendship. But slowly this veneer of normalcy is torn away, revealing deception and infidelity. This version, aired on Masterpiece Theatre in the 1980s, maintains the novel's nonlinear structure, using flashbacks to reveal the gap between life as it is perceived, and life as it really is.
