Robert Altman, one of America's most distinctive filmmakers, journeys to England for the first time to create a unique film mosaic with an outstanding ensemble cast.

But when a murder occurs, each one of these interesting characters becomes a suspect.

• What gift do you think a good servant has that separates them from the others? Its the gift of anticipation. And I’m a good servant; I’m better than good, I’m the best; I’m the perfect servant.

• I’m the perfect servant; I have no life.
