  • msmichel's rating of the film Little England

    MWFF '14 Well made but overlong Greek melodrama for those that believe that one can die from a broken heart. A man is refused a girls hand in a port town only to marry the younger sister after achieving his success causing heartbreak all around. Mix in a loveless marriage, a dominating mother and WWII; add strings and tears; and voila :melodrama. Production values are strong but certainly not everyone's cup of tea.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Little England

    Admittedly very well made with impressive and unsettling shots of the waves crushing on the rocky shores of Andros, this period drama features also great performances, particularly from the female cast, that capture the unfolding of tragedy both in the domestic sphere and in the plight of naval officers in the tempestuous seas. Maybe too academic in tone and style, yet it has merits and dramatic rewards.
