We viewed this film through Netflix and, although the photography and scenery in the film is absolutely astounding, overall the movie just does not rise even towards the top. It plods along for quite a long while before the plot becomes at least somewhat apparent. The acting is rather wooden and mostly devoid of realistic personalities and human interaction, but that may be because of the intent to portray a dark, melancholy side of life, which it does that indeed. Since the parental advisory feature on IMDb of this film is locked, viewers should be aware of frequent uses of the F word and a sex scene that is not at all subliminal. Should be rated R.

This is a joke a film. Ten years olds could come up with a more interesting plot - the acting is abysmal - its not even funny bad - its just depressing that standards have gotten so low that people are actually duped into watching something like this. Character - are never developed - there is no 'personality' in this film - whoever did the score did a good job the music is beautiful - but that is it - everything else about it - think about your most boring school lesson when you were a kid - then imagine it lasting for two days - that is just about how bored watching the first 45mins of this film made me feel. And its so awful I had to come on here and write a review as I was lead to believe there was some merit some it by previous reviews - and there is not. I have been to Dartmoor - so what? there are about three locations in this film - could be anywhere. Boring. Avoid.
I'm prejudiced when it comes to Dartmoor. It's my home, and I set my novels there, so when I discovered this little gem, I was quite delighted to see all my book locations so lovingly captured.
It's such a shame that Hollywood dominates everything these days. Little indy films like this, low budget and yet so quintessentially English, can't compete when put up against something with the money of, say, The Night Manager. This is a surprisingly good film, given it's probably only going to have a "made for TV" kind of exposure.
A well-crafted thriller, it's taut, keeps the interest, and had a few twists along the way I didn't see coming. I'm giving it ten because of its choice of location. The woods, the tors, the stream, the pool they swim in, the farm...I know them all very well. I swear I even recognised the small spider which appeared in one shot. Sue me; I'm homesick. I left Dartmoor to live in New Zealand. You can take the author out of the moors, but you can never take the moors ... 'nuff said.
Highly recommended for fans of Agatha Christie-style dramas and all homesick Devonians.
