One of Dave Hill’s most accomplished short films, ‘Over The Sea to Skye’ features a stellar cast in a drama set in an epic landscape of the north of Scotland. The story is less important than the theme of voyeurism set in a world of thermos flasks, Tupperwear, and rambling. The cast give a stunning performance, especially the lady in the pink headscarf who steals one of the film’s key scenes, but it’s Mr. Hill’s camerawork that is the real star here. Not since ‘Peeping Tom’ has the camera taken such a prominent role in a film and makes this an instant classic for lovers of good cinema everywhere. **** (Rated PG-13 for mild peril)
