“Bridges has a special gift for these evocations of a world seen in a bell jar.” - Pauline Kael

1913, and while Europe trembles on the brink of war, Sir Randolph Nettleby (James Mason in his last film role before his death) gathers together a group of European aristocrats for a weekend of huntin’ and shootin’. A fascinating look at a world of blissfully privileged ignorance that was about to be swept away for ever.
