Storyline

The Travelling Artist is a dark fairy-tale combining the drama of modern horror with classic elements of Gothic imagery inspired by German Expressionist films of the 1920s. A young artist, Lucy Snow, struggles bravely to cope with the plight of her seriously ill mother and her own faltering talents as a painter. Her dreams become haunted by a shadowy figure, the mythical Travelling Artist. This lonely wanderer, it's whispered, has roamed the world for over a century in pursuit of his creative visions. Can such a man exist? And if he does, will his powers be able to rescue Lucy from sadness, and what form will salvation take? Written by Anonymous

It's better than I could do!
17 September 2010 | by marktobias23See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this film recently at a special screening with the father of co-director Jez Blackmore.

It has a dark feel to it, reminiscent of 1920s German cinema. There is little dialogue and the lead actress meets the challenge of conveying the emotional journey she's going on. The music sets the mood very well and I especially like the piece that sounds like a music box. The story seems to successfully and subtly merge aspects of two of my favourite films, Edward Scissorhands and Labyrinth.

Overall a good effort from the mostly student cast and crew. A positive glimpse of great things to come from independent British cinema.
