Close-Up Film’s Review of Sailcloth starring John Hurt

In Sailcloth on December 2, 2011 at 11:22 am

“Adalsteins’ direction is assured and commands a steady, deft grip on a beautifully melodic film, in a tale that’s poignant but never maudlin, dealing with loss in a manner that’s positive and inspiring, and all the time keeping the audience with the characters.  It’s nicely paced and blends seamlessly with the mellifluous imagery of the Cornish coast and a haunting score from composer Richard Cottle.  Most of all, Adalsteins has managed to give us an understated but defiant encapsulation of the triumph of the human spirit, all in the space of just 20 short minutes.” – Jean Lynch – Up-Close Film
