The Victorians, failing to understand the roots of mental illness, employed a whole range of absurd treatments — spinning chairs, douches, purges, bleedings and vomitings — Ken Campbell manages to turn it all into a black and accusing farce, that contrives to be both harrowing and enthralling. “The film is based on careful research and its overall effect is pure magic” — Herbert Kretzmer, Daily Mail. Ken Campbell and Simon Callow star in this production.
