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!
