Critics reviews

Director Géza von Bolváry (a Hungarian who worked in Germany) laces the film with flights into expressionistic geometry, ghoulish atmosphere, and as much stylization as the story will bear. From Britain, the film gets its source material (a much-adapted play by Arnold Ridley) and a delicious streak of cheeky, mordant wit.
