In the stark beauty of 19th Century Snowdonia a young girl tries desperately to hold her home together. Struggling with her mother's mysterious illness, her father's absence and a ruthless mining company encroaching on their land. A growing darkness begins to take grip of her home, and the suspicious local community turns on Gwen and her family.
This film is beautifully shot and the Snowdonia setting is stunning. I can't help but feel that the filmmaker got caught up in all this and used it to death.
The most frustrating thing for me is that neither of the two leads were Welsh with that being immediately evident once they said their first lines. Also, there were a range of different dialects in this rural community - some characters had north walian accents, some west walian and some south walian. That for me took away a huge amount of believability and authenticity. Might just be because I'm Welsh but I couldn't see past it.
