A German rocket scientist arrives on a small Scotish island in the mid 1930s. He's there to run tests on a new type of rocket that is to be used for mail delivery between the island and the mainland. Initially he's met with scepticism, but slowly the islanders come to like and trust him. One of the young women falls in love with him, but with WWII around the corner life gets complicated.
Nostalgic, relaxing, scenic, easy on the mind and eye
An excellent film for those who simply need to switch off and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Scotland. Based on fact, the film takes you on a journey of love amidst spectacular scenery. The cast are 'dressed down' for the parts they play, so no glamorous costumes or coiffured hair in this film where acting is superb, gritty and down to earth.Each character is believable giving a convincing portrayal of island life, beliefs and culture of the time A definite for those who have even the tiniest drop of Scottish blood..... as it will tug at the heart strings and stir the soul. Something that can be shared with the family and watched time and time again..................a real classic, one that I am sure will walk alongside some of the great films that never die.
