I love this movie and own a copy, but I occasionally watch it via Amazon or Netflix. I have probably watched it end to end 8 or 9 times, and bits of it even more often. In addition to having great actors, a great set and an interesting, dramatic story line, it contains a very neat mystery evocative of Agatha Christie at her best. Much of it written by Julian Fellowes who later became the chief writer of Downton Abbey, the story captures the sense and breadth of both that series and the Upstairs, Downstairs series (which Fellowes also contributed to) but in a greatly condensed form. Robert Altman's best film with wonderful performances from Michael Gambon, Maggie Smith, Helen Mirren, Clive Owen, Charles Dance, Jeremy Northam, Kelly Macdonald, Stephen Fry, Kristin Scott Thomas, Bob Balaban, Derek Jacobi and many others. A masterpiece of mood, mystery, wit, and human drama set in the English countryside in 1932, with great scenery and music (Northam's singing is not to be missed) to boot !!
