Separate Lies (UK 2005)

Duplicitious love

Duplicitious love

A movie about the marital problems of upper class English people… However this is brilliant. I loved the moral ambiguity; there ain’t much ‘right and wrong’. The complexity on offer is like life; plus good performances (particularly Wilkinson). An excellent British film! Blimey! (OAR)

This stands up well to a second viewing; a noticed the gorgeous countryside and ‘dream’ home more. Amongst the trappings of material wealth unhappiness exists – a cliche it’s true but its well presented in this film. The black Inspector was not convincing: good idea (‘How do you find Buckinghamshire?’; ‘Well I was born here’) but are there senior black coppers in rural areas – certainly none so young.
