Audience Reviews for Sunset Song

  • Aug 25, 2016
    It's visual beauty is offset by the fact that the main character remains a cypher from begging to end.

    Want to visit Scotland but can't afford a plane ticket? Want to see it from a rural perspective, pre-WWl, but no one's invented a time machine yet? You could do worse than this brief visit with a family living their day-to-day lives. Not a lot of exposition here, but it's all beautifully filmed. It's dull in some places, no doubt like Scotland herself, and you'll long for a chase scene somewhere, anywhere, even if it's only in a supermarket.
