| Things do not go as expected
Surprisingly enjoyable and certainly well made little UK picture filmed partly on location near Naples to great effect. The tale begins fairly mundanely and it seems we are in for some light melodrama as two uptight English sisters possibly vie for the attention of some rich landowner. Turns out they are the landowners, the property is in Italy and a good part of this is set out in the wonderful sunshine and vistas of the bay of Naples. Things do not go as expected and although we have wonderful, almost neorealist shots of happy peasants and the grape harvest, a darker side soon begins to emerge and this ends up being akin to Suspicion and Gaslight. Perhaps not quite as dark as those two films but this certainly has its moments and the cast perform very well under tight direction and beautiful photography.
