Bait (2019)

  • Drama, Captioned
  • 1h 29m

This remarkable British film is a clash of the old worlds and the new. Cornish fisherman Martin Ward (Edward Rowe) must deal with his brother Steven (Giles King), who uses their boat for tourist cruises, and the well-off Londoners who have bought his childhood home. The cultural clash is represented in the look of the film, shot with an old Bolex camera in black-and-white 16mm and hand-processed by Jenkin, which produces a realistic tone and a real sense of depth and history. Beautifully shot, Bait balances modern concerns with nostalgia.
