92 minutes

A lonely chambermaid finds herself in love with an ex-cop she met at a speed date evening, but things go awry when he takes her to the country mansion where he is a watchman. Smartly handled, moody character study doubling up as disquieting thriller-cum-ghost story that loses steam after its big plot reveal two thirds in.
