Capturing the feel
3 January 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Who watches Welsh language films these days..? Well me, for one. This is a beautifully shot exploration of rural Wales, sunk in unemployment and recession, through he eyes of a young boy. If any Welsh film has captured the feel of the times with such sensitivity and style, it'll be this one.

There's a great feeling of optimism in this film, despite the times. A favourite moment for me, is when the young lead spies Japanese businessmen scouting for locations for a possible factory near an old quarry. Wearing transparent plastic raincoats, they look just like aliens in this landscape, which fuels the boy's imagination even further and propelling him towards a reationship with them that brings so much to the story.

A great film, even twenty years on. Watch out for me (and my brother) aged 8, walking up a hill to school in front of the young boy and his friend. I'm the one with the blonde pigtails!
