And Soon the Darkness

Story concerns two young British girls pedalling through a dull, flat, deserted part of France on vacation. One's a pert miss (Michele Dotrice), her chum is a more down-to-earth girl (Pamela Franklin), worried by her chum's desire to sunbathe, ogle the local lads and generally throw a spanner wrench into the timetable of the holiday.

After a tiff the two separate. Franklin, lonely and remorseful, returns to find Dotrice. But she is missing. The film mainly concerns the trouble Franklin gets into while trying to solve the problem of what happened to her friend.

French atmosphere is conveyed excellently and helps reward the doom-laden gloom but overall there’s a leering, sinister feeling about this piece which is repellent.
