beautiful movie
14 July 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a couple of years ago.

It was beautifully shot.

I think it was somewhere in england.

It is a bittersweet movie about a girl who is ostracized by her village.

I just love the place where the movie was shot.

The actress who played the girl was great.

The following is taken from a website

**************** What a sweet story this was! And what a likable creature Mally, " ... wild- looking, almost unearthly creature, with wild-flowing, black, uncombed hair ...". It almost seems like she sprang fully formed from the earth, totally unaware of any vestiges of civilization, but yet with a native gentility. " ****************

I can't have put it better myself. :)
