El verano de la señora Forbes 1989
1h 29min | Drama | TV Movie 15 August 1989
Mrs. Forbes, a German governess, is hired for six weeks to take care of two children, while their parents are away. She is authoritarian and repressive, so the children plan to murder her. But when they spy on her during the night, they discover Mrs. Forbes’ secret.
This is an excellent story of repressed sexuality. We have a governess that has problems far more troubling than any problems that the two boys in the film have. Add in a very attractive local hunky male and you have a prescription for disaster.
The acting in this film is quite excellent. Ms. Schygulla as the governess is memorable. The actors playing the children are excellent. This film has a pleasant beginning but things quickly become sordid. The ending is quite bizarre and even a little unexpected.
I can recommend this film without reservation. 8 out of 10.
