Storyline

Rebecca Daly's first feature film The Other Side of Sleep is the haunting journey of Arlene (Antonia Campell Hughes). Arlene is a ghost in her own life. She lives in a small town in the midlands - surrounded by field after field, woodlands and laneways to disappear down and never come back. One morning she wakes in the woods beside the body of a young woman. Someone watches from the trees. The body is soon discovered and suspicion spreads through the community. Increasingly drawn to the girl's family - her grieving sister and accused boyfriend, Arlene barricades herself in at night, afraid to sleep. Haunted by grief buried and delayed, Arlene's sleeping and waking realities soon blur. And all this time someone is watching her. Written by Anonymous

Slow moving study of grief
28 November 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Cork Film Festival this month. The writer/director spoke before the screening and explained that the movie was based on her own experiences of grief.

The movie is well made but it didn't really hold my attention. It is obviously a very personal film and my own life experiences didn't allow me to fully appreciate it.

It is the story of a twenty something girl living in a small Irish town. Her mother was murdered in England when she was much younger and she has never recovered from this. She sleep walks and one morning she wakes to find herself in a wood lying next to the body of a murdered local girl.

Because of the similarities with her mother's death she becomes obsessed with the girl and her family and her world starts to fall apart.

Antonia Campbell Hughes is very good as the melancholy main character. However the movie was too slow moving for my liking.
