    I watched this in part because I’d really gotten into Michael Nyman’s scores and I read this was his most popular one. While listening I thought to myself “This is a lot more piano than he usually uses”, which (considering the title), I really should have expected.

    I think I was confused as to the nature of Ada’s muteness when I watched it, although the explanation does come from an unreliable narrator/child. But you don’t need to understand anything to enjoy Campion’s depiction of the New Zealand scenery which (since I’d watched Top of the Lake) was the other major draw.

    I really do feel like she lends commanding direction of the landscape, it’s a truly remarkable film, that gives you a lot to mull over, thanks for reading!
