Top-notch thriller with its own take on 'The Secret Garden'
14 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

I caught this film at the Welsh International Film festival a couple of years ago, and it stood out (decapitated) head and shoulders above anything else. It's a superbly-crafted thriller about a man searching for his missing father, and finding a hell of a lot more in the shape of an isolated matriarchal family in Nova Scotia. The script, acting, use of locations, and most of all the superb atmosphere combine to make this one of the best films I've ever seen. It's a real pity it's not well known, as it certainly beats most of Hollywood's output hands down.
