An eerie tale of love and deception
13 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

An eerie tale of love and deception set in the Scottish Highlands. Emma Thompson and Adrian Dunbar compellingly portray the roles of a troubled couple about to have their first child. The past, not only their own but that of a parallel couple from the past, become enmeshed through dream, reality and gossip.

The use of water imagery pervades this film from the blue mist at night to its tragic watery conclusion.

As this engaging short film is set in the Gaelic speaking Highlands of Scotland some attention to the indigenous language of this region would have assisted in credibility and continuity.
