    From Time To Time, 2009. directed by Julian Fellowes starring Maggie Smith and Timothy Spall.

    touching and well acted ghost story, although the story is slightly flawed.

    Nailbiting stuff, not seen this in at least ten years.

    William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist) did an English language remake called “The Sorceror” with Roy Sheider in 1977, but doesn’t come close to the original.
    If you like this, top tip also check out “Les Diaboliques” by the same Director.
    One of my favourite films - as you say a real "nailbiter".

    BTW they are carrying nitroglycerine; a far more unstable explosive than dynamite. In fact it was Alfred Nobel's idea of mixing nitrogylcerine with a clay (called kieselguhr) that made it mechanically stable. He called the new explosive 'dynamite' and it made Nobel his fortune.

    The ending of the film is a shocking surprise.

    Not a bad film - but De Palma is not my favourite director.
