| Interesting story rather drawn out
Realistic story which maintains interest, though three quarters of an hour could have been cut without much loss. Shown here in one near three hour instalment, the tendency was to come up against almost soap-opera saga, though far less ephimeral in import.

Reasonably good performances crowned by an exceptional Brenda Fricker who more or less saves the day with her steady interpretation; if `her' two adolescent children started off a little weak, their playing improved later on. Lena Stolze was quite convincing in her role.

Apart from that, this is more or less a standard TV production with nothing specific to make it stand out. The car accident on the autobahn was magnificently done. However: the story line makes its impact as you get further into the film, and human emotions become the centre of development in this drama.

Nicely filmed around Dusseldorf, but especially in Dublin and Bray, Eire. The accompanying music is not up to much.
