Award-winning TV director Euros Lyn (Broadchurch, Happy Valley) has adapted Fflur Dafydd’s bestselling novel (Y Llyfrgell) with pace and panache, presenting a distinctive mixture of offbeat thriller and philosophical mystery. Riffing on notions of Identity, performance, and storytelling, Lyn unravels his serpentine story at breakneck speed, but the result is a steady composed and assured piece of filmmaking.
