"Modestly though efficiently expressionistic..."
20 December 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

English screenwriter and director Joanna Hogg's second feature film which she wrote, premiered at the 54th London Film Festival in 2010, was screened at the 15th Busan International Film Festival in 2010, was shot on location in Tresco, Isles of Scilly in Cornwall, England and is a UK production which was produced by producer Gayle Griffiths. It tells the story about a man named Edward, who goes on a goodbye holiday to a vacation house on an island with his mother named Patricia and his older sister named Cynthia. As they settle in, they await Edward and Cynthia's father who is expected to join them and Edward befriends a cook from Northamptonshire named Rose.

Distinctly and precisely directed by British filmmaker Joanna Hogg, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints, draws a quiet and contemplative portrayal of the solidarity, individuality and tensions within a family that is missing one significant piece. While notable for its naturalistic and atmospheric milieu depictions, sterling cinematography by cinematographer Ed Rutherford, production design by French production designer Stéphane Collonge, fine editing by Danish film editor Helle Le Fevre and use of sound, colors and light, this dialog-driven story about crucial decisions, interpersonal communication and family relations, depicts some dense and internal studies of character.

This tangible, theatrical and humane drama from the late 2000s which is set on a private island in South West England which is one of the five Isles of Scilly which forms an archipelago, is impelled and reinforced by its fleeting narrative structure, subtle character development and continuity, rare aura, interesting characters, partly improvised dialog, underlying emotional substance and the refined and involving acting performances by English actor Tom Hiddleston, English actresses Kate Fahy, Lydia Leonard, Amy Lloyd in her debut feature film role and English landscape painter Christopher W. Baker. An atmospheric, at times lyrical and modestly though efficiently expressionistic character piece.
