Don’t miss The Father, now through Sunday September 23. That’s this weekend!
Andre was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter, Anne, and her husband, Antoine. Or was he an engineer, whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he’s still wearing his pajamas and can’t find his watch. He’s starting to wonder if he’s losing control.

Dear Mr. Eliker,
Twenty years ago I was 18 and after finishing the 3rd high school year with A my parents as per usual asked me to pick something as a reward. At my local PC store I picked Black Dahlia video game. Ever since it has been my all-time favourite adventure game to play and I have been playing it regularly all these years.
Two years ago with a new PC I switched to Windows 10 and was unable to run the game until this month, with the help of few recent patches I found online. Having just finished playing it again I found it to be as immersing and enjoyable as ever, which is not something one could say about many PC games from that era.
Your performance as Jim is wonderful in every way, from acting to how you wore that entire smart wardrobe. I’m particularly fond of your scene with Teri Garr (if only there were a few more!) and with Amy Dommer, who played Alice. You seemed to have excellent chemistry with her and I wish the story had an option for a happier ending. Needless to say, the scene with Dennis Hopper was also a winner.
It is a shame that there was no sequel made, despite the ending. It seems nowadays we can only wish for an adventure game of such calibre to appear. That’s why Black Dahlia is one of the games I keep returning to.
I see you are still acting. I am very much into theatre as a member of the audience (both plays and musicals), which is why I travel to London often, as well as going to theatre here in my native Croatia. If you ever find yourself on a London stage, it would be a pleasure to see you in something.
With the very best wishes,
Marijan Bosnar, from Zagreb, Croatia
Marijan, thank you very much for those extraordinarily kind words! I’m so happy to hear that you find the game has stood up so well. What a heroic effort to make it run again after all that time! It was an extremely rewarding experience for everyone involved. Yes, we all hoped for a sequel but as the technology changed from FMV to digital and motion capture, we’re all grateful just to have been a part of it. I still get to work with my friend David Whalen (Winslow) now and then. Blessings to you and thanks for reaching out!
