    July 31, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The landscapes are the best part of the film's power: woodlands grey with mist and rain; seasons grudging with their colours; a woody gorge spanned by a mouldering, spectacular viaduct that becomes a character - a kind of devil ex machina - all its own.

    July 31, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [Features an] outsider perspective, authentic locations, unforced naturalism, and fresh, improvisatory work by first-time actors.

    April 10, 2014 | Full Review…
  • There's a startling stillness about the film, especially the opening scenes, that becomes a character in itself and helps to avoid softness.
