Film Synopsis: A beautiful British couple (Rupert Everett and Natasha Richardson) are working on their relationship while on holiday in Venice when they fall under the spell of an older couple (Christopher Walken and Helen Mirren) who draw them into the sinister web of their opulent, old-world palazzo. Written by Nobel laureate Harold Pinter and directed by Paul Schrader (American Gigolo, First Reformed), this seductive, unsettling romantic thriller is imbued with an atmosphere of sumptuous dread by elegant gliding tracking shots filmed in location in Venice's most evocative locations.
