Oh dear.
28 October 1999 | by (Ottawa, ON) – See all my reviews

Aside from the absolutely beautiful scenery of Orkney, this movie is really not worth watching.

I had been looking forward to seeing this because I was very interested in seeing a film directed by a Scottish woman (there are few) and my film prof told me that the director's short films were brilliant. I was extraordinarily disappointed. It takes place in three time periods, with the most modern one being the most irritating (is it a play? is it a movie?). The plot is nearly non-existent...it has something to do with a family of slightly wacky women who have a tendency to drown, with some attempts to have an evil city/wonderful country seaside conflict, but the effect is extremely muddled.

My advice? Don't bother with this one.
