Raised by their Bible-obsessed, invalid mother, seven children care for her and one another in a gloomy Victorian house. The mother dies, and the children, terrified of being separated and even more terrified of the outside world, build a graveside shrine to her in the backyard and carry on as if nothing has happened. When their long-lost father shows up, he seems to fall in with their plans. Then the children begin to realize he has a different plan altogether. Dirk Bogarde is marvelously menacing as the father, a smiling charmer one moment and seedy sharpie the next, but the children give this eerie, hypnotic film its icy heartbeat.
