Unfortunately, a pretty awful independent movie.
25 May 2017 | by popseye21See all my reviews

How did this movie score so highly on IMDb?

I am a big fan of independent movies... Especially British ones. However, not wishing to slate the cast or the film-makers too harshly I feel I should leave a review as to warn others. In as few words as possible this film does not even come close to being rated as an 8??... (Which is how it was rated when I watched it).

Please note the following points -

This film has an awful script... (back of fag packet springs to mind).

Followed by an awful dialogue... (even the subtitles were sub-standard!)

Followed by some people who are credited as actors... Who barely interact... If at all?

Enough said I think?

There are some quite pleasant views of the countryside and the camera-work in the main is not too bad... Although I feel it would have been achievable by a twelve year old with a bad leg and possibly with a sprained wrist too.

So, there you are if you're still game, please indulge yourself for an hour and a half, and then leave your own review!
