Storyline

Daniel (a private detective) is hired by beautiful and wealthy Rebecca to find out who killed her father. On the surface, it looks like an accident or suicide, but she is convinced he was murdered. The investigation leads to the discovery of a seedy world beneath the veneer of a civilized city famous for fine education, universities, and iconic 'Englishness'. Little does Daniel know he will soon no longer be the hunter, but the hunted. Written by Mol smith

Trivia

A quiet location was allocated for the meeting between the doctor and the Detective, Martin. A pub in a quiet village in England at 11.00 am on a Sunday morning. It turned out to be a very noisy location with people cycling through the village asking if the pub was open, local birds deciding to pitch up and sing to their friends - curious at what was going on... and then flights of jet planes flying over from a local airshow display, and a lost dog turning up looking for help. The conversation was filmed and recorded with many tens of stops, re-starts and piecing part sentences in mid-flow. See more »

Good stuff!
6 August 2017 | by earthpagesSee all my reviews

The legendary Lorelei is a dark enchantress who lures fisherman and sailors to their death. In geography she is a steep rock over 400 feet high on the bank of the Rhine river.

Her legend survives in countless songs and stories. So Mol Smith's The Lorelei continues a long tradition of blending feminine beauty, danger and death—in French and in the arts, she's la femme fatale.

From the opening frames of this Indie film, set and shot around Oxford, I knew I would enjoy it. But not just because the story takes place at Oxford.

After a scenic introduction, The Lorelei quickly moves into a well- paced, supernaturally tinged murder mystery that poses tough questions often overlooked by the learned.
