A simple, beautifully-filmed story about a reclusive, hunchbacked lighthouse keeper (Richard Harris) and an orphaned girl (Jenny Agutter, whose beauty shines through her masculine clothing) brought together by an injured snow goose. The story is played out against the backdrop of early Second World War England, but the primary story is about these two outcasts and how their friendship, and their care for the goose, allows them to overcome the pain the rest of the world has inflicted on them. Tragic, unforgettable, yet never mawkish, and never a false note.
