A group of travellers, each with a personal problem that they want to hide, arrives at a mysterious Welsh country inn. There is a certain strangeness in the air as they are greeted by the innkeeper and his daughter (Mervyn Johns and his real life daughter Glynis Johns). Why are all the newspapers a year old ? And why doesn't Gwyneth seem to cast a shadow ?—Steve Crook

Short Review

The acting of everybody concerned is on a remarkably high level, much of the exterior photography is lovely and the dialogue has force and wit, so that for all its faults it is a memorable film.
