Wales, late1944. The Allies invasion of Europe has failed and Britain is now under Nazi occupation. A remote Welsh valley wakes to find its menfolk gone, presumably to join the resistance movement. One of its inhabitants, young wife Sarah (Riseborough), is quickly forced to adjust to life cheek-by-jowl with a squad of German soldiers.
A beautiful, elliptical war film with the haunting qualities of a ghost story. Riseborough is terrific and Gupta proves that he's a talent to watch.
