This was Jan Dunn's exciting debut as a director. She followed dogme principles – among them, no special effects, and naturalistic acting – to explore a narrative from three points of view. The life of Helen, a middle-aged woman struggling against her repressive husband Paul to express herself creatively, is transformed by the arrival of Tasha, a Czech refugee. Paul McGann and Chloe Sirene are effective foils and contrasts to the powerful central actor. 'A warm and generous performance from Pauline McLynn...shows she's entitled to put behind her the days of being Father Ted's tea-fixated housekeeper.' (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian)
