The breathtaking opening vistas of Personal Baggage, with a choral score to match, give fair but subliminal warning to the audience: this film will twist you and turn you. A talented but spoilt young man smothered in the affection of his adoring mother and heedless of his aloof father; his grandfather, a benevolent but self-important patriarch; and his new girl-friend, a creature of voluptuous innocence wrestling with the torment of a dysfunctional home, are the central characters in this ensemble narrative of strained love and spiralling desire.
