Supernatural cautionary tale
3 May 2005 | by (Bolton, England) – See all my reviews

A low key mixture of mystery and romance with supernatural overtones. Amanda Redman is excellent as a lonely geography teacher whose quiet life is disrupted by a frightening encounter with a strange man in a Welsh bed and breakfast - a man who vanishes into thin air. Back home she is shocked to find that the new drama teacher at her school looks the same as that stranger. A tentative romance begins, but that moment in Wales always remains in the back of her mind.

The mystery is really a plot driver for the real message of the story, which is about the difficulty, yet importance, of trusting another person. Especially when love is involved. Michael Maloney is fine as the charming, quirky man who tries to woo her. John Nettleton enjoys a fruity cameo as the bread-making landlord of The Loreilei. Chilly Wales also performs well, with its impressive mountains and pretty villages. This is a modern day fairytale with an ambiguous conclusion.
