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

A laugh a minute (not !)
5 January 2006 | by (Halifax, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Don't go see this film if you're feeling down or a bit depressed. It's quite possibly the bleakest film I've ever seen. I cannot recall a single light moment. Having said this, it is superbly shot, the plot maintains your interest to the end and the acting is excellent. A real plus was Samantha Bond who looked well tasty as the Doctor. The Mike Hammershoi character took some working out (still not quite sure what made him tick) and Francis Black was real mean, brilliantly portrayed by Peter Mullan. I've no idea of this film's budget but it can't have cost much to make unless the actors were paid a fortune. The most expensive props seemed to me to be those being dumped in the bottomless pit !
