PBS Mystery Contemporary. 2 part investigation of an accident on a major road near London follows the various factors of cause & effects to all involved. Very enjoyable - no subtitles, which some may have trouble with speech acuity.

An excellent production with several sterling performances. An incident which, during investigation, develops to reveal the individual stories of the people involved. Held us glued to the screen to the end. No mean feat.

Very well done
The English know how to tell a good story. Some of the accents were
Scottish, hard for some to understand,
but watched to the end very enjoyable

One of the best movies I've seen. The script is seamless, weaving several characters' stories together beautifully in a complex plot. It's less a "whodunnit" than a "whydunnit", and the resolution is wittily satisfying. Not one to miss.

Amazing twists and turns--if the Brits can do these great mysteries Why can't we????????????????

This movie should have had sub titles - the English accent was very difficult to understand b/c of the rapid speech pattern - enunciation of words lacked clarity/projection . We didn't watch the whole movie - a disappointment since Anthony Horowitz is a favorite author, movie producer/director of ours

I cannot recommend this highly enough. I cannot imagine any improvements. Provocative, dramatic, sympathetic, humour, mystery. A reminder that often things are so complicted, intertwined - and yet, so simple. A shining example of the Butterfly Effect.

One of the best movies we've seen in a long time; it holds one's interest through the whole production. Anyone interested in British detective series such as Touch of Frost, Inspector Lewis, etc. would love this one. Great character studies and the back and forth in the chronological order of events leading up to the tragedy and afterwards keeps you on the edge of your seat.

I thought it was one of the best movies, I'd seen in ages. Makes you realize that there is both good and bad in every situation.
