Maggie and David are excellent.
I watched this for the sake of two actors I admire and they didn't disappoint. The story is confusing, but Maggie & David have terrific screen presence. They only have one short scene together, but it's worth the wait. I'm a fan of David's comedic work and am aware that many may dismiss his talent because of this. In reality he is a dedicated actor, who enjoys learning new material and taking advice from directors/producers/co stars etc. The Making Of on the DVD shows this, as well as explaining some of the complexities of the plot. I look forward to the commentary too. I hadn't watched "Joe's Palace", but this wasn't essential. Maggie is simply magic. I read Greville as being a "vampiric" character - charming & sinister. No wonder she could never get him out of her mind. 8/10
