86 minutes

A young traveler who has left her old life behind and doesn't want to tie herself down to any one place or person accepts the offer of a man living alone in a remote Irish cottage to help him tend his garden. Mesmerizingly shot, deliberately opaque two-hander whose plot unfolds through the exquisitely modulated silences, tempos and the two leads' performances; shame about the ending, though.
