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

Impressive Low budget Noir
27 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I reckon this is a real cinematic achievement for a micro budget film. The cinematography is lush and moody, and its backed up with great performances by an impressive cast - Peter Mullan as a blind abusive husband, Jodhi May as his desperate wife, Anders Bertelson as her unwitting lover and Phyllida Law as Mullan's tricky mother. Like the mud pit threatening to drown the cast at the start of the film, the dark mood established draws you into a murderous love triangle and morality tale. Looks like it was inspired by The Postman Only Rings Twice as it has similar obsessive characters at the heart of the story. Definitely worth a look!
