Painted Lady (1997/British Mystery Mini-Series/Acorn Media DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Episodes: C+



Helen Mirren made one of her odder TV productions as a former Rock singer (think Marianne Faithful meets Christine McVie) who is retired and content, but finds herself scrambling to find a murderer in Julian Jarrold’s Painted Lady (1997) a two-part Mystery in which someone personally close to her is murdered during a robbery of one of many expensive paintings.  They also live near each other and she rushes to help him when the alarm goes off in his home.


This is a title we previously reviewed when issued by WGBH (now out of print) and you can read about it at this link:





They are virtually the same disc, except the image quality seems a bit weaker here.
