Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 06/01/1989
"...A spellbinder....A visionary film of rare courage and imperishable heart..."
New York Times - 06/28/1989
"...[Ward] takes every artistic risk his bizarre premise allows....The result is a dark, thrilling fantasy that places [him]...among the most innovative and authoritative young film makers..."
Film Comment - 08/01/1988
"...Vincent Ward's film scales mountains of metaphor..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/05/1989
"...A beguiling fable, surprising and original, the kind of film that is fully realized visually..."

Plot Synopsis:

Vincent Ward's metaphoric tale of sibling relations, AIDS and modern problems in general follows the quest of a group of medieval British villagers. Desiring an explanation of a prophetic dream, the group of miners descends into the deep recesses of Cambrian hills. They emerge in modern day Wellington, New Zealand and set about on a search for that city's cathedral spire -- as seen in the dream. During their journey they encounter local dwellers and treat every commonplace modern occurrence as an obstacle of mythic proportions.
