Ruth (Sonya Harum) wants to find out more about her mother Gale (Maggie
Geha), who has been murdered 10 years ago, but who had abandoned Ruth way
before that due to being sexually abused by her own father and eventually
just running away at too young an age to take her daughter with her.
only person Ruth can trace down who might know about her mother is Miller
(Tom McKay), an agoraphobic restaurator living in an abandoned
slaughterhouse nearby. And even though Miller seems to be enjoying life as
a hermit, Ruth eventually gets him to trust her, and he starts relating
his story: Miller, a drifter by nature, got a job as a farmhand at Uriah's
(Lars Gerhard) tobacco farm, and even if Uriah was a less than trusting,
rough and sometimes violent man, Miller soon won his trust. As it
happened, Miller soon also bumped into Gale, who just happened to be
Uriah's wife. The two of them were attracted to one another almost
immediately and soon they were having an affair, using every minute Uriah
was out of town to be together. They were also making plans to run away
together, but Uriah finds out and ...
Ruth is shocked by these
revelations, and she deeply feels for Miller, who hasn't left his home
(the abandoned slaughterhouse) since then. But then she meets with Uriah's
sister, who throws a rather different light on the story ...
Harrow is an entirely interesting rural drama that's pretty awesome in
keeping the audience in the dark as to what the film's actually about: It
does seem like a simple story of undying love, veers off into tragedy and
then takes a total turnaround to expertly overthrow the story so far. Now
add to this a directorial effort that's steeped in atmosphere and often
comes across as somewhat close to a ghost movie, locations really fitting
the story, and a cast of very solid actors, and you've got yourself a
rather fine movie!
