Tim Mielants / Bouli Lanners | 2021 | 99 MINS
Belgium | Some Subtitles
This romantic drama which premiered at the 2022 Chichester Film Festival is set and shot on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland, where the wild, beautiful terrain and harsh weather are important characters.

In Detail

The islanders are devout Presbyterians that keep their emotions in check. When Phil (Bouli Lanners) has a stroke, he is left okay physically but can’t remember anything.

He is a middle-aged Belgian who works as a farmhand for a local landowner. He gets on well with the farmer’s son, but the old man has little time for foreigners so, when Phil returns from hospital, the farmer’s mature-aged daughter, Millie (Michelle Fairley), takes it upon herself to reacquaint Phil with his work, his home and his surroundings. When Millie reveals to him that they were secretly in a relationship, he has no reason to doubt her. Lanners and Fairley are beautifully cast to play the autumnal lovers. It is a highly original idea, one that will keep you guessing until the film’s moving climax. Make sure you have a tissue in your pocket!
