Dark Scottish Twist, 12 February 2009
Author: druoleary from United States

This is a brilliant film noir and Edinburgh, possibly the most haunted and haunting city in Europe, is the perfect backdrop for this gripping drama of deception, corruption, love and moral conflict. Though the film is downright grisly at times, it is completely in line with Scotland's brutal history and Auld Reekie's Burke and Hare past. In fact, the town and its history are one of the main characters. Low Winter Sun is a murder/missing person mystery that is a classic tale of human evil that also addresses today's urban problems, such as, illegal immigration and the weakening of religious faith. It is superbly acted with outstanding performances by Mark Strong and Brain McCardie. The cinematography is disturbingly beautiful and the editing is seamless. My only complaint about this film is that it is not available on DVD!
