Loved it

Like the previous reviewer I have to confess to having followed the production of this movie over the last year and to being a pagan.

So often when you've been waiting a long time for something like this it can never quite live up to your expectations, but in many ways this movie exceeded mine - even though it was a very low-budget film the quality of the acting was excellent, the story was very good, the music of Damh the Bard is fantastic (he's released several independent albums - check them out - and if you ever get the chance to see him live... take it!).

The only thing that I found detracted from the film slightly was that a couple of the actors' singing was really not quite up to scratch - such a shame they couldn't find a couple of hundred quid in the budget for some singing lessons - hence 9/10 rather than 10/10.

The story is about a small group of people who hate their lives and find themselves transported out to a grove in the middle of the night. They learn about the old gods and the ways of paganism and realise that... well I don't want to spoil it by giving too much away - though you can probably guess what they come to realise.

If you're a pagan... watch it. If you're unhappy with your life... watch it. If you love the countryside and feel there's something more to it than just grass and trees... watch the film. If you're an investment banker who thinks he deserves his £1 million bonus and loves spending money on material goods... probably best to give it a miss.
