Urszula Antoniak's stunningly assured debut is touching, gentle, and playful. An enigmatic beauty drifts from town to town, hitching rides through the Irish countryside. She comes across an isolated cabin and strikes up an uneasy relationship with its owner. Haunted by their pasts, each has something to offer the other: the solace of his cabin and her welcome companionship.

What I liked about this movie : A young woman on an uncertain quest, initially alone, facing the natural elements of the rugged countryside; the evolution of, and concentration on the developing relationship between the main characters in their rather isolated situation; and I thought the ending was plausible and gratifying.

The best thing about this movie is the scenery. Other than that, it was a waste of time. I did not find the story at all believable, and the female character was annoying in addition to not believable. One reviewer sees this as something of a character study, which I can see, but there is simply too much blank space that the viewer seems to be expected to fill in. All in all, I think this film tries too hard to be some sort of vague arty piece, but falls flat.

A young Danish woman takes off her wedding ring signifying the end of a marriage (death or divorce? Not known which). She migrates to the countryside of Ireland to avoid contact with other people, but comes across a desolated house and meets an older man whose wife has died recently. They slowly develop a relationship and respect and love for one another, albeit platonic love? This is a simple, quiet indie film (debut director).

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way. Very predictable Very Boring

Seemed to get good reviews but I found it very dull. Essentially a look at an unusual relationship between two odd characters.

A paean to platonic love...essentially a cast of 2. Set in a weathered-battered Irish seacoast, this beautifully photographed movie contains stunning shots evocative of Impressionist natural settings. Stephen Rea's performance is assuredly subtle with hints of the usual Irish drynes. A movie that deals with character studies and maybe that explains the focus on just the two. Haunting.

Very interesting, lots of untold things letting you to fill the gaps and guess the reasons. The end is included in this: everything seemed to develop so positive...
