Welsh Film Festival – Under Milk Wood

Part of the Welsh Film Festival, presented by the Ottawa Welsh Society!

A new cinematic adaptation of legendary Welsh poet Dylan Thomas’s classic radio play, this radically surreal and erotic film features an ensemble cast of familiar Welsh faces, led by Rhys Ifans as First Voice and Captain Cat, alongside Charlotte Church as Polly Garter.

Poster for the Dylan Thomas adaptation Under Milk WoodAllen’s film comes across as a kind of fast-moving fever-dream – appropriately enough, given the swelling tide of fantasy that Thomas instills in the drama: everyone, and everything, is operating through a sweaty film of lust or delusion.
Allen notes of his visceral and visual interpretation, “I was determined to craft a cinematic rendition that challenged the common perception; that poetry should remain in the domain of the reader.”
