Roddy has a camera implanted in his brain. He is then hired by a television producer to film a documentary of terminally ill Katherine, without her knowledge. His footage will then be run on the popular TV series, “Death Watch”…

This movie foretold the downside of the “reality TV” craze twenty years before it happened. Wonderful brooding cinematography around greater Glasgow at its most depressed. This is definitely a film which deserves to be in greater circulation and better known than it currently is. Romy Schneider’s last film, ironically enough, and an excellent very real performance in a fairly artsy 70s vein.
