Many viewers of the BBC’s new thriller, The Girl Before, complain that the film is too ‘confusing’.

The series, based on JP Delaney’s novel of the same name, is about Jane, a woman who is looking for a place to rent, but ends up stumbling upon “the rental opportunity of a lifetime”.
She might move into a chic, minimalist home called ‘One Folgate Street.
One condition, however, is that she must abide by a long list of rules set forth by her landlord, a “mysterious architect”.

Jane makes a shocking discovery that reveals details of the former occupant, Emma, a woman similar to Jane.
There are striking similarities between the two women, leading Jane to question how much their lives overlap.
The official synopsis reads: “Jane begins to feel the house change in unexpected ways, but when she discovers that her predecessor Emma has died in the house, she is forced to confront the similarities. amazing copper.
“As the two women’s timelines intertwine, Jane begins to wonder if her fate will be the same as the one before…”

“Not too sure about it [the show]. very slow and confusing,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
Another added: “It’s a bit confusing when they show 2 couples in the house at the same time.”
And a third complains: “So who lived there first? Couple or single girl? Confusing timeline.”
