Interesting and well-shot, but not sure where the film was going with the plot
5 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although it s very nicely paced and filmed, I'm not entirely sure how to take this film. The plot sees a girl out in a boggy area of Ireland with her father, an archaeologist. She gets lost in the peat bogs and finds two very attractive brothers working together who give her directions. She faints off her bike nearby, falling into a bog and discovering the remains of a man supposedly killed as part of a ritual many years ago. She tries to tell her father but is uninterested so she stays with the two men, going back to their house to clean up. Staying the night and turning 17 that very day, the girl continues to explore and discover things for the first time.

There is a theme here of discovery but I am not sure how to take the connection between the father's job, the girl's discovery and the final discovery of the film. I'm also not sure how to take the meaning of the final shot and the progression of the plot and the ritualistic nature of parts of it. It seems to be a path of discovery for the girl but it seems a very specific and convoluted way to deliver this – with so many other aspects in here distracting from that central theme. It is very well made around this, with a good pace to the story telling that draws you along and a nice natural air to the performances and the places. It held my attention and it interested me throughout, but the theme of exploring and stumbling into new discoveries seemed a bit too convoluted and generally I didn't totally get where the film was trying to go with it.
