Very romantic, art house drama
24 March 2010 | by iogeirSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the Estepona Fantastic Film Festival where it won an award. It is a pleasantly poetic and low key indie drama set in the dark ages which is very unusual for that kind of genre. It's like Jim Jarmusch or David Lynch directing a historic film. The film feels very real but is also stylized and has a lot of contemporary themes and elements. There is a lesbian love story in it as well as ideas about the destruction of nature and the end of the old Pagan religions who were one with nature. The camera work and the music is extremely beautiful. The acting is good, mostly from the female cast who clearly own the movie. Lea Mornar as the lesbian warrior girl steals the show but the lead, Winter Ave Zoli is very good as well. If you have an opportunity watch this film, it's edgy and very different than any film I know about the dark ages.
