Another Time Another Place

It's not often that a British film is realized with as much creative integrity as Another Time Another Place. The plot springs from the cultural difference between the inhabitants of a bleak Scottish agricultural village and a trio of Italians confined to the community during the World War II. One Italian in particular, the passionate Neopolitan Luigi (Giovanni Mauriello) mesmerizes Janie (Phyllis Logan) by seeming to offer an alternative to an emotionally cold marriage and a laborious penny-pinching life. The rest of the Scottish community remain suspicious of the strangers in their midst.

The rest of the Scottish community remain suspicious of the strangers in their midst.

The developing relationship is narrated with a light and humorous touch, even though both parties are drawn to each other out of desperation.

Central to the film’s effectiveness is the performance of Logan as the girl entranced. Eyes and gestures capture the initial longing followed by the remorse that follows surrender.

The film’s impact derives also from representations of daily life and a landscape that changes with the seasons.
