Plot Synopsis

Another Time Another Place

This thoughtful drama was the directorial debut of Michael Radford and an early Channel Four film production.

Set in Scotland Highlands during World War II, Janie (Phyllis Logan) is a sexually frustrated crofter�s wife living in a small rural farming community. Fifteen years trapped in a marriage to a farmer who is cold and distant has left her aching for something more. As the war spirals on, a trio of Italian prisoners are sent to Janie’s town to work as farmhands, helping out the locals. It is not long before Janie grasps the chance of an escape from the monotony of her life, embarking on a doomed affair with one of the prisoners, Luigi (Giovanni Mauriello). Putting herself on the line in a time of such uncertainty and heartache, Janie stands to lose more than just her lover.
