Just Burbling
Last night I had a great experience; I cried out in shock and horror. I was alone - the first time for days - had Tesco's rich dark chocolate in my mouth and was watching a thriller 'Bon Voyage' written by Oliver Brown shewn on ITV1 (it irks me when people fail to mention the author or hide it so well no one knows who's responsible.)
I'm telling you this because it has the second, final part tonight at 9pm and you may care to watch it. I had seen Fay Ripley interviewed about it so assumed she would be the leading actress, which made it all the more startling when she wasn't Briefly it is about two families independantly travelling through France on holiday. The main couple's marriage is in trouble and this is a make or break time for them. They are befriended by another couple who ingratiate themselves and cause the first couple to try to escape what they see as a boring dreary pair.
The plot gets darker and brilliantly conveys the hopeless panic one feels when things go wrong in a strange country and there was one coup de theatre which had me yelling out loud. Do watch if you are at a loose end - they always do a rehash st the beginning and don't for get the choclolate!

I watched this too & had to turn the volume down, I was so scared. Although a bit over the top, it is well acted & scripted & am surprised that Fay Ripley can be so creepy!

nmj: apparently they filmed it in Canada and she was six months pregnant. See you tonight:)

I'll try and watch it provided I'm not competing with some footie match. Sounds nice and escapist

Whew, I'd probably need my pillow to hide my eyes, and I'd be yelling out to the people in the show...does anyone do this? Yell and annoy other viewers?
