Enjoyable, unique story with superb acting
19 June 2016 | by lqk9See all my reviews

I saw this at the start of an international film festival programme, and booked it after watching the trailer and becoming intrigued about how the story unfolded. I don't want to share too much because part of the pleasure of watching it was not knowing very much about the key plot lines - suffice to say that it's about a handful of people working in the National Library of Wales, and the work/archive of one of Wales' greatest writers after she's died - and the demons and lives affected by it after she's gone. It's a very unique little story, with excellent acting (the story is mostly on the shoulders of one female lead actor, with great support from the surrounding actors). Our showing had the director introduce it beforehand, where he tried to get the audience to pronounce the Welsh title, and said he has a background in TV production. You can tell because the movie's pacing is particularly good - basically it's a mix of being a thriller as the story unfolds, into more of a focus on drama as we get to care about the characters towards the end. There are also a fair few dark comedy moments in it. My partner remarked after the viewing that it reminded him of a few of the darker nordic movies he's watched before, but I'm struggling to come up with names to give examples here. Anyway, an excellent movie, really glad we added it into our film festival plans!
