The war is a distant backdrop in this unconventional romance largely set in the Scottish Hebrides, where a city girl is transplanted into a rural environment and comes to question her preconceptions. It was perhaps Powell and Pressburger’s most personal film to date: a metaphysical love story which confirmed their continuing departure from Britain’s realist tradition.
