Storyline

Wayland returns home after being in the war in Afghanistan. He returns home not only injured and suffering seizures but also to find the family he left behind has disintegrated in his absence: his wife has become an alcoholic and his daughter has left home and then vanished without a trace. He is determined to find his daughter but his investigation uncovers a dark, sinister world where nothing is quite what it seems. To make matters worse he suffers terrifying flashbacks of his time in Afghanistan. His quest becomes not only about finding her but also about discovering who and what he has become. Wayland is looking for something he left behind in the killing fields of Helmand Province - his humanity and his soul. Written by Adam Sumner

Visually stunning
28 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I never thought I'd be the first person to review a film on this website. Wayland's Song is the first feature film to be made in Bedford (UK) and was the first film shown at the first Bedford Film Festival. I didn't see the film in an ideal setting i.e not in a proper cinema so the projector was in the room with us and it was a bit noisy. I couldn't make out whether it was just due to the background noise, but I found the dialogue hard to make out at times and follow the thread of the film. It may also have been due to this that made it seem a bit slow to get going. However I did think it was an excellent film, very well made, good acting and visually stunning. The main storyline is fairly simple, that of a soldier returning from Afghanistan and looking for his missing daughter, but there are a lot of subtexts as explained by Richard Jobson in a Q&A session after, with the references to religion, Norse mythology and Wayland the master blacksmith, and the use of colour in the film. Worth seeing.
