The Third Day…

For those not of this isle, then you may not know what The Third Day is. Imaging Wicker Man without the burning of Edward Woodward (yes, the original film, not the crap remake). It is set on the real island of Osea just off the Essex coast (Southern England). Osea is a private island that is only accessible via a causeway that is usually underwater apart from when the tide goes out. I had no idea that the island existed, but I am intrigued and fancy visiting it to stay whenever the world goes back to normal.

The Causeway to Osea

The story follows the islanders who seem to have a pagan lifestyle with their own take on religion, that the island is the heart of the planet and if things go sour on the island then that too happens to the rest of the world. Jude Law is the focal point in the first three episodes which are “summer”, and Naomie Harris is focal for three episodes of “winter” which has not yet been aired yet. However, there is also a middle bit Calle “Autumn” which makes sense. It started at 9:30am this morning and is on for 12 hours, no interruptions for commercials, just a solid 12 hour “one take”episode with no cutaways, scene changes, just done as a POV. Throughout there is eerie music playing and none of the dialogue can really be heard properly. It started out travelling from the mainland to the island which took just over 30 minutes of what I can only describe as a camera on a remote-controlled unit, slowly moving at a slow walking pace over the causeway. I am two and a quarter hours in and I have to say it is the oddest thing I have seen. It is slow, and as mentioned no real dialogue to listen to, but is quite hypnotic, rain splashes on the camera lense which after a small-time seem natural.

Waiting for Sam (Jude Law)

The weather outside is bad here, so watching something for 12 hours in the background seems like a good thing to do, and who does not like a bit of Jude Law. If you have the time, check it out, but be prepared for something very odd.
