A true Revenger's Tragedy. Furies chasing a Fury in a landscape to match. An extraordinary sound track. And just as you are wondering how it is all going to end, it suddenly does, and you are left wondering whether there is hope for those who survive, or whether the circle of revenge will resume in the future. Again and again successive festivals show us that you don't need a big budget. In fact there might well be an inverse law of budgets that matches the inverse law of hype. All you need is a story, some actors, a camera and some film, and the passion and commitment to see it through. It all sounds so simple, but of course it isn't. Look on all you aspiring film makers and be impressed.
