Synopsis:
Mary (Natasha Richardson) and Colin (Rupert Everett) attempt to reinvigorate their flagging relationship with a romantic trip to Venice. Soon, though, they find themselves drawn into a complex web of deceit, passion, perversion and sexual intrigue, subtly spun by mysterious Robert (Christopher Walken), who resides nearby in palatial splendour with his wife Caroline (Helen Mirren). Adapted from Ian McEwan's haunting novel, "The Comfort of Strangers" will lead you on a shadowy, dreamlike journey towards the darkest realms of human experience.

Medal of you stay the course........... - The Comfort of Strangers review by BE

Spoiler Alert
17/12/2017

Although nicely crafted it is quite a lethargic movie. Most of the viewing time was spent waiting for something to happen. I would liken it to watching paint dry but was taken aback when the paint hit the fan at the end! Filmed in the beautiful city of Venice, although it was filmed twenty seven years ago, I did wonder how they had managed to avoid all the tourists that must have been around even then.

Unheralded masterpiece - The Comfort of Strangers review by NP

Actually think this is an unheralded masterpiece. Christopher Walken is utterly terrifying and the film itself is chilling and mesmeric.
