Dated and disappointing - Secret Ceremony review by CSF

Spoiler Alert
14/07/2022

I have always loved and admired Joseph Losey but certainly not for that film. The characters are not credible anymore after 20 minutes. The story is not sophisticated enough for the 21st Century. At the end, I felt that the story was pointless.
