Storyline

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 BOB STEBBINS <stebinsbob@aol.com>

A strange, dark mystery with compelling characters
27 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Based on a novel by Barbara Vine, this is a dark, complex mystery that probes the psyches of various desperate characters as they try to obtain the objects of their obsessions. The twisted, dependent relationship between the main characters, Joe and Sandor, is fascinating, and the actors, Michael Sheen and Paul Rhys, do excellent work. Rhys makes a snobbish yet charming sociopath, while Sheen manages to be both heartbreakingly vulnerable and slightly creepy. The plot has a few good twists, and the film makers manage to make the bright, wide open English countryside seem claustrophobic and ominous, which perfectly fits the mood of the story.
