Very special and very beautiful film.
27 July 2012 | by (Ukraine) – See all my reviews

The beauty of this film is so special, rare and silent that it can sometimes be unexpected for some viewers. But you should just let in your soul the magic and silence of the island, fairy stories, the salty cold wind from the ocean. As shown by facts, often the most profound and beautiful films remain largely unknown, which is very regrettable. This film is made with great love and it can be felt throughout. Wonderful music and graphics perfectly complement a fascinating impression. The film has so many sounds of nature - wind, birds, sea - all this gives you an absolute illusion of your presence on the island near to heroes of the film. Of course, the soul of this island, this little world, wrapped in mists, is Calum. He is naive, his soul is pure and rich with marvelous treasures, stories and myths. There are thousands of priceless details, gestures, facial expressions, intonations in his voice, with which Colin Morgan very carefully, very gently and really brilliantly creates the character of Calum. One of the most pleasant impressions of the film for me is Calum's acсent! It was easy for me to understand all of what he said, because I read the book before watching the movie . Acting skills by Natalie Press is truly impressive. Nervous, tense, desperate voice of Nicky conveys all of her emotions. She is like tense violin string ready to tear at any second. I really want to say more, but my poor English does not allow me to do it.
