I had the opportunity to attend the North American premiere of Axelle Carolyn's Soulmate at the Egyptian Theatre. The film was dark, gothic, hauntingly romantic, and in a word, fantastic.

Audrey (Anna Walton) is a recent, young widow who is plagued by the premature death of her husband. She attempts suicide to escape her pain, but her failure leads her to an even deeper depression. She escapes to a remote cottage in the Wales countryside to be in solitude and to work on her music once again. Audrey soon hears noises coming from a locked room in the cottage, only to eventually learn that it is haunted by the previous owner, Douglas Talbot (Tom Wisdom). Axelle creates suspense, both with the accompanying music score and with the camera. However, the jump-in-your-seat shocks happen when you least expect them! I admit, I flinched several times and on one occasion, actually let out a quick scream, much to my embarrassment. Instead of running away from her ghostly housemate, Audrey befriends him, much to his amazement. Their friendship develops beautifully; each one helping the other cope with the torments of their past. There is a love for one another, one much deeper than the other, though.

Anna is superb as Audrey; you feel her pain along with her, often with a knot in your stomach as she tries to make it through each day. As her tension relaxes with her new supernatural friend, you experience the warm, fuzzy feelings during their unique moments of camaraderie. Simple gestures, such as playing chess together (as Douglas struggles to move the pieces to the desired space with his energy), leaves you with a sweet smile. And when Audrey feels terror, you feel it with her.

Spooky, heartbreaking, beautiful. It's more a story about loss, loneliness and redemption than a ghost story. A little gem. The silence and the landscape become a character in the movie. simply loved it

It's a rather deceiving cover, having been marketed as a scary ghost tale. This movie may have worked shorter and if the BBC ever released their old short Christmas Ghost Stories again. As it stands, good acting aside, scenes drag in the middle when the 'bump in the night' beginning chapter is over.
The film ends with a damp squib and that is unfortunate since for a short while it truly tries to build to something, but is let down by what feels like an unfinished work.

It's worth seeing but do not expect an all out terror driven ride. Enjoy the scenery and the almost sepia toned filming.

This is a beautiful, atmospheric movie with a very intimate feel. Set almost entirely within or around an isolated Welsh cottage and with a cast of only five, the film centers around Audrey, a young widow traumatised by the loss of her husband and her own subsequent failed suicide attempt,who moves to the cottage to try and recuperate in solitude. She soon begins to suspect, however, that she is not alone in the house, as her nights are disturbed by noises coming from a locked room. What starts out as fairly standard ghost story fare takes an unexpected turn when Audrey finally meets the cottage's ghost, Douglas, and instead of being afraid, befriends him. As they bond over their mutual experience of loss and suicide, Douglas becomes more and more "real" and able to interact with the world, and their friendship helps Audrey begin to heal.

The cinematograpy is gorgeous, making full use of the bleak but beautiful countryside and the remote, ancient cottage. The small cast adds to the intimate feel of the film and underlines Audrey's isolation (both physical and psychological). There is a real sense of underlying menace to the film and the initial build up to the revelation of Douglas' existence is genuinely spooky and atmospheric, and there were several moments that made me genuinely jump with fright. The twist in the tale, as the movie turns away from the traditional scary ghost story into a touching story of a burgeoning friendship and Audrey's hesitant recovery, is unexpected and enjoyable, and sets the audience up for the shocking resolution.

Anna Walton excels as Audrey, her grief and sorrow palpable, and Tom Wisdom is by turns intruiging, endearing and menacing as Douglas. The ghostly special effects are done well and are used sparsely yet effectively...

Soulmate starts quite slowly but it is worth being patient as it builds to a terrific climax. The lead actors are both convincing and the setting of the isolated house in Wales adds greatly to the ghostly atmosphere. It is a most unusual and imaginative film. The cinematography is beautiful. To convey the build-up in the tension and the weirdness of the events which happen it is critically important the film has this strong creative and visual impact. This film surely delivers chills and mystery and is very very watchable.

An extremely clever ghost story that presses all the right buttons. The twist in the tale made me watch it all over again.
