A beautiful, touching film of a tragic war time relationship
26 July 2002 | by (Victoria, Australia) – See all my reviews

Set in a remote area of war time Scotland of the 1940's, this is a beautiful and moving film that features an extraordinary performance from Phyllis Logan as the courageous young wife desperately looking for meaning in a barren, isolated lifestyle. Her "escape" from a cold and uncaring life with her husband is touchingly portrayed, although the illegal relationship with Italian prisoner of war Luigi always appears problematic. The scenery is incredibly vivid and raw, and the story told humanely and realistically. What I loved most about this film was its lack of cheap sentimentality and the understated deep emotion of the story. All actors are excellent in their support of the undoubted star. 10 out of 10.
