Storyline

While doing her rounds in the Scottish countryside, Doctor Caroline Lamar comes upon a hitchhiker, and offers him a lift. Young Danish backpacker Mike Hammershoi explains that he is looking for work in the area, and so she points him in the direction of Black's farm, an isolated steading. Francis Black, the owner, who is blind, and lives there with his ailing mother Bella, and enigmatic young wife Rachel, tells Mike he can work in the yard. But put off by the foreboding atmosphere, Mike declines. A chance encounter with Rachel, however, persuades him to stay and settle in. Since the accident that blinded him two years earlier, Francis has become incresingly bitter, and sensing hs young wife's attraction to the stranger, orders him to leave. But rather than force them apart, Mike's imminent departure only serves to bind teh two in a passionate relationship that will ultimately have dark consequences for them all. Written by Anonymous

dark yet beautiful
12 October 2004 | by (ghent, belgium) – See all my reviews

'Blinded' is a dark movie, in a sinister setting in Scotland. Love, murder, adultery and deceiving are the key words in this beautiful yet moody film. Divine play by most actors. Some scenes reminded me of urban legends, where someone is, by chance, trapped in a desperate situation with terrible (or in this case acceptable?) consequences. The soundtrack is quite strange, but seems to be perfectly in harmony with the desolate and depressing environment. I saw the movie today during the International Film Festival in Ghent, and the audience (at least the people who accompanied me) all liked 'Blinded'. In a short interview we were told that the character of Rachel was based on a collection of Danish paintings owned by Michael Palin (!).
