The word "gallowglass" means servant, or one indebted to another. This is the story of a young man who feels such indebtedness to another young man after he is saved from committing suicide by jumping in front of an oncoming train. So strong is his sense of gratitude that he follows his 'savior' even to the kidnaping of a wealthy woman. But there are ulterior motives to the kidnaping, complicating it with other details that intertwine and make for a typical British murder mystery. Written by

Misguided loyalty to an obsessed companion, British-style!
I saw this movie several years ago and visions of it are still haunting. The narrative style, picturesque cinematography and great acting come together seamlessly. The wrenching attempt to recapture a triste love-affair as only the UK can deliver, emotes empathy and aversion simultaneously.
