A peaceful North Wales village is about to disappear once and for all under the waters of a dam that is about to be built by a powerful water company commanded by a city businessman, at one time a local resident of the place. It's time for the simple villagers to take action and try to save the only place they know and love. Written by
Richard Burton's first film and Dame Edith Evans before her smash hit in Wilde's "Earnest"(and after establishing herself in the theatre and knighted), plus a wonderful cast of supporting characters and an atmosphere of solid strength of morals and ethics which only British films can evoke so memorably on celluloid.
This movie is a gem because it seeps into the deepest crevices of our hearts by a subtle interplay of mood and character study where words fail and acting skill take over.
'The Last Days of Dolwyn' is highly recommended. If you have the chance see it.
