Said to ‘Out Hitchcock Hitchcock’, Anthony Asquith’s A Cottage on Dartmoor uses every cinematic trick available to create a story of jealousy and suspense. It is a snapshot of early talking films, cleverly woven into a plot that involves an escaped convict, a love triangle and, naturally, hairdressing. 

Asquith builds many layers of ambiguity, acknowledging that it is possible to be torn between two people, that happiness is relative, while touching on themes of loneliness, lust and mental illness. Ultimately, however, this is a film about love: its joys as well as its ravages.
