Gone To Ground

In an isolated farmhouse, an old ex-RAF wartime pilot’s quiet world of gardening, memories and crosswords is shattered by the arrival of an injured and traumatised woman on the run.

Shot over three years (not helped by Covid), the film stars Alan Breck as Guy. Sadly Alan didn’t live to see the completed film. He died early in 2022. But his indomitable spirit lives on in a marvelous final performance as the cantankerous, irritating but courageous and kindly old man.

He’s matched by Melissa de Mol as Magda, streetwise and crude, mistakenly called Suka (look it up) by Guy. They argue, disagree and misunderstand each other often hilariously.

The film was shot using Arri Alexas with anamorphic lenses on location in Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, London and Southampton.
