Storyline

In the countryside of England, lonely farmer Nancy raises her daughters Hanna and Amy with financial difficulties in her farm with her only employee Cooper since her husband has disappeared a long time ago. Her neighbor Karsten and his son intend to buy her farm and are pressing the family in an abusive way. Out of the blue, wanderer Aden appears in the farm and helps Nancy with the delivery of the offspring. Aden explains that he was a friend of her husband Dean in an offshore rig and he offers to work for food and lodging. Nancy accepts the offer and soon she has a love affair with Aden. But either Nancy or Aden have dark secrets. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

What starts as a pretty strong thriller descends into an odd (and sadly) bad mix of clichés. Notice who is still standing at the end and who isn't. See a pattern there? I wouldn't have, because I didn't really bother to think about the movie, but another viewer pointed that out to the director. She said it was a coincidence, but I seriously doubt that it was.

Don't get me wrong, there have been movies going the opposite way than this (didn't like that either), but that's not what appalled me. The fact that you get a soap opera, dripping with melodrama in a bad way, that may have gore as a redeeming factor (for some) does make this a difficult watch. It's a shame, that the mood set at the beginning gets undermined by that.
