Storyline

This ghost story, set at the turn of the century, centers on the plight of elderly dowager Marianna, who is tormented by the alleged specter of a young man roaming the corridors of her mansion. After spotting a face in an old photograph that seems to match the old woman's description of the "visitor", Marianna's sister decides to check things out and see if any of this is for real.

An elegant and confident ghostly tale
29 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An elegant and confident ghostly tale, shot mainly in and around a Scottish castle. Most likable, not full of ghastly moments and very much a slow burn. But, none the less effective for that with some great moments. One involving a rocking chair and another, a short ferry boat ride across a river. Decent performances, although this did seem more like a superior TV movie rather than a feature film at times, with some flatness of voice. Lady director may be why there seemed to be particularly good use of period costumes and incidentals including good portrayal of servants and also gypsies in the woods. perhaps a little too much time spent on the meetings and greetings and dancing and drinking, though I very much enjoyed the daughter (who was 'on the stage') that drank more brandy than the old boys and smoked a pipe, well! Nothing sensational but worthy of a watch if you get the chance, although I have to say it was a good job my print was so good because some of this was shot in very low light indeed.
