User Reviews: > A chain of events involving a family.rnrnJust a month ago I saw ‘Maigret Sets a Trap’, and this is another terrific BBC film. Based on the JB Priestley’s play of the same name made for television. I never saw other versions nor I knew the story, so that’s the reason I loved it. I don’t know the difference, the changes between this and the original material, but I think a screenplay like this should have been a big screen product. Surely one of the best films of the year with a great suspense and twists.rnrnI expected a crime solving drama, like a detective use his brainpower to nab a suspect in a style, but this was complete an unexpected narration with various angles of briefing involving a family and their individual link to a woman.

But what this film’s specialty is that makes realise for its characters that how their part influenced a woman’s life.rnrnIt’s the year 1912, during a wealthy Birling family celebrating their daughter’s engagement, a mysterious inspector interrupts them to question on a woman who committed suicide on that evening.
