A young man arrives for dinner at the house of a middle aged couple. From the moment he walks through the door, the air is thick with tension. Conversation is hard work. What's going on?

Well shot, nice lighting etc. The idea was very predictable, could tell from the moment he walked through the door what was going to happen. It's an old idea and was done better, and was much funnier, in Alan Partridge. The pacing let this film down immensely. Once the tense atmosphere had been established the film should have moved on but didn't. The scenes are over-long, like in the living room. More importantly, why did we have to watch them undress in slo mo? This was unnecessary, and again only served the purpose of slowing the pace. Despite being British (not that that should have any bearing) this did not appeal to my sense of humour. The film was missing a climax and didn't really go anywhere, it felt as though there should have been more, though whether or not I could have endured it is another question.
