| I think this film should be viewed on its overall merits, rather than incidents, which are central to Juanita Carberry's story.
It is difficult to disagree that the floggings of Juanita Carberry were, perhaps, excessive, but it was she who exposed Jock Delves- Broughton's confession. Compared with "White Mischief", this is a far superior film, better acted, particularly by Holly Aird & Michael Byrne who is wholly repellent as Jack Carberry - which may have provoked the disgust expressed in the other review. Denholm Elliot, an actor who has always managed to get into the essence of the characters he portrays, is outstanding as Broughton. The sense of period is imaginatively evoked, the settings realistic and one really feels that this is what was happening in Kenya during the war; bored people trying to justify their empty lives. It really deserves to be issued in DVD format
