Did You Know?


The film's Welsh title, "Y Llyfrgell" (The Library), is the same as that of the original novel on which the film is based. The Welsh word llyfrgell literally means "book cell". Fflur Dafydd (the author of the novel and scriptwriter of the film) has explained how - that resonance being absent from the English word "library" - the film's producers took the decision to use the longer title "The Library Suicides" when referring to the film in English.

Interesting Thriller from Wales.
4 March 2017 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

The basic plot is that a Welsh author of note has died – by her own hand. Her twin daughters both work at the National Library of Wales as archivists. Then strange things start to happen and it is all, seemingly, linked to the dead woman's past.

Now this is a hard film to say anymore about without running into the area of plot reveals. It is a small budget affair with a mere handful of players. However, it has the feel of a quality production with great use of the camera and well above average performances from everybody – there are no passengers in this film.

It is almost entirely in Welsh too with good sub titles. As a thriller it more than holds its own but some may have issues with the dénouement and that I feel will be a matter of taste/belief. I was more or less fine with it and it is nice to see great independent film making still being original in Wales – recommended for fans of indie's.
