Good filmBy rtdpj from Essex , 20 Oct 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This is the sort of film that you can't just watch and then go and do something else. It hits you right between the eyes with its course pain and panic and yet it is beautiful and subtle. Hard to put into words;
Hard to watch... At times yes.
Worth watching. Yes!

Tense and intriguingBy a customer , 17 Apr 2013If you're looking for something different then this movie is definitely worth a watch. I found myself drawn in by the storyline until the frustration of a glitch on the hired dvd that had me trying a variety of devises to watch the last hour before giving up and waiting for a replacement thereby losing any sense of the obvious build up of tension. A lost opportunity for me but I could see its potential so recommend to others.
Slow burning wonderful film.By a customer , 13 Jan 2013This slow gentle film is haunting and melancholy - the young actress who plays Celia is wonderful and Matthew Macfadyen also. It is a slow paced twisting film with several stories running separately then coming together but it is well worth the watch. Brilliant! Stayed with me for ages after watching.
Superb, cool, slow simmering mystery.By LoxfordOfZ (41 reviews) , 01 Nov 2012A real touch of class.
No big drama, no hyped up action, just a subtle undercurrent throughout. Everything seems to be finely balanced to keep you wondering.
I agree with the comments about the American songs, however, aside from them there is a beautifully appropriate original mystical soundtrack.
Overlong & a Bit DrearyBy Iggi_1 (143 reviews) , 22 Jul 2012Not the most exciting or enthralling watch. Progresses at a fairly languid pace in a generally dreary fashion. The key part of the story is telegraphed fairly early on, one spends the remainder of the film wondering whodunnit and why. Although the film is well crafted and the acting is good, you may wonder why you bothered to watch it when it has finally dragged itself to it's conclusion.
In My Father's DenBy bladebla (3 reviews) , 22 Jan 2012At first, I found this film a bit slow, but so glad I stayed with it. Good actors and intriguing storyline. Very emotive and left you caring about the characters. Enjoyed the location scenery. Watch it.
