Miranda Richardson explodes on the screen with looks and attitude to deliver a strong performance as the low life commoner obsessed with an upper class egoist. Ian Holm is excellent as the good guy who is always there for her, although he mostly hits the same note throughout. This DVD would have been much better if English subtitles were available. The accents can be difficult for an American ear to fathom. It's entertaining and, at times, riveting. But, the pattern of the relationship is a bit static and that keeps this film from getting to the next level.
