This film is about a German rocket scientist going to a remote Scottish island to help develop a rocket for improving the postal service.
As others have already commented, the scenery is breathtaking. Blue skies, white sand, green pastures and authentic cottages are just the few features of the film. However, I feel that the film heavily relies on the scenery to make it watchable. The pacing is incredibly slow, which is probably to mirror the way of life in the villages. The story is somewhat predictable, but still fresh in the sense of its rural setting. The ending is touching, both from Gerhard's plot and the villagers' story. I liked the soundtrack, which abundantly uses traditional folk music. It gives the film a touch of authenticity. It is a refreshing tale that I am glad to have watched.
