    Essential Cinema: CYMRU FACH

    Along with PATAGONIA, CYMRU FACH highlights the beauty - and, to some, eccentricity - of the Welsh language.  Unlike that film, however, CYMRU FACH is a rather more claustrophobic, edgy experience.

    Structurally echoing LA RONDE, the film is essentially a compendium of morality tales circulating around sexual mores, but this conceit acts as a prism for a wider observation of what it is to be Welsh, and in Wales, in the 21st century.

    Based on a critically acclaimed play by William Owen Roberts, Gruffydd Davies' film makes beautiful use of saturated HD video textures, angular editing and neon-soaked ambience as a counterpoint to the raw emotions and awkward interplay of characters who are perhaps better suited to a fleeting acquaintance than a long term relationship.

    Written by William Owen Roberts
    Cinematography by Sian Elin Palfrey
