"How brave of distributors New Wave Films to pick up such a seemingly uncommercial project and present it to the public in such a tough economic climate, even if the film only pops up on a bare handful of screens across the country. In an ideal world, such boldness would yield rich reward - and there'd be a receptive climate for reflectively quiet, intensely personal, experimentally poetic documentaries such as this.

As it is, such fare is generally restricted to film festivals - such as Edinburgh, where sleep furiously premiered to favourable notices last June. Sight and Sound hailed Koppel, a Liverpool-born, Slade-educated artist who teaches in London and Paris, as 'the unfussiest film-maker since Bresson,' describing his film as 'quite simply, a masterpiece.'"


open_quote The spirit of Dylan Thomas hovers over this lyrical documentary about a Welsh farming community...unusually tender and eccentric. close_quote Sam Wigley, Total Film
