After their car breaks down, they seek sanctuary in an isolated building, home to a strange sect, whose whole equilibrium is threatened by the arrival of the two men. The result is chaos. Written by
This starts out looking like a run of the mill road trip film then suddenly you realise it's tripped into Wicker man territory. Well worth seeing, especially if you're familiar with the atmosphere in the highlands of scotland as its full of subtle references to the attitudes of the location, which really ring true.
In a way it's a one actor movie but Alastair Mackenzie does well as Charlie, although for anyone who's seen Monarch of the Glen it's difficult to stop seeing him as Archie. That being said the supporting cast, the usual suspects from the scottish luvies, do well too.
Overall a delightful, well observed comedy on the nature of escapisim.
