Time Out says

Set in rural Scotland during the final year of WWII, the boldly-explored concerns of Radford's debut feature are with desire and desperation, passion and imprisonment. With a classically simple metaphor of liberation and constraint at its heart - the relationship between a trio of Italian POWs and a girl stifling in a barren environment of loveless labour - the film widens its focus on crossed cultures and connections into a productive interrogation of both the narrative and formal seductions of foreign-ness. Cast, shot and cut with startling effectiveness, and confidently carving its own sometimes quirky path between those territories already staked out by Bill Douglas and Bill Forsyth, the film emerges as a generous delight, almost exotically moving.
