  4. "This film about solitude and relationship across the species is tenderly made and embued with a love of landscape. The story drew me in; I wanted to know more about everything that had already happened and, crucially, about what happened next… "
    Sally Potter

    "PETER AND BEN, the story of a man and his sheep in Wales has a wonderful human touch to it. It's clear that the soul of the sheep is inside the man, and the soul of the man is inside the sheep."
    Werner Herzog
