    I'm looking for this 1996 movie featuring Richard E Grant and Simon Cadell.

    The Cold Light of Day (1996) - IMDb

    If anyone could help me locate a copy I'd be most grateful.

    Well there is this, but you'd need a VCR with NTSC playback to watch it or get it copied to DVD by somewhere over here.

    Thanks Pelam. I also found this version:

    The Cold Light Of Day (VHS) (1995): Richard E. Grant, Simon Cadell, Lynsey Baxter, Perdita Weeks, James Laurenson, Heathcote Williams, Rudolf Van Den Berg: Amazon.co.uk: Video

    which works out roughly the same price and it's PAL. I have VHS to DVD setup so I may well decide to go that way if nobody here can help.

    It's the second version of Durenmatt's "Es geschah am hellichten Tag" (aka "The Pledge") and is pretty good.

    This Greek DVD is also available .....

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The superb original version is also available (via two different releases) from amazon.de but has no English subtitles .....

    ..... there is a US dubbed version of the original on DVDR which is titled It Happened In Broad Daylight and is available here .....
