- The Trap review by TE
Something of an oddity in the film career of Rita Tushingham. She rolls her eyes and gurns her way through her role as a young mute woman on the grim frontier in British Columbia in the early 19th century.
At least she didn't have to learn any lines.
Her co-lead is Oliver Reed, who hams it up in his usual irritating way, guffawing crazily and doing his best Desperate Dan impressions. His accent is meant to be that of a French trapper, but it changes from one scene to the next, with a heavy emphasis on cod-Irish.
The glorious Canadian scenery is the best reason for watching this strange Mills & Boon rom-com.
