The Sunday Times

Edward Porter

An appealing melange, and Rhys (who made the film with Dylan Goch) is a likeable guide, chatting enthusiastically to locals and joining them in concerts in village halls.

Variety

Andrew Barker

Yet even when nonstop digressions begin to test one's patience, the film is always easy on the eyes and ears, and a dramatization of 19th-century Welsh emigration via Bollywood-style interpretive dance is worth the price of admission.

Empire Magazine

Philip Wilding

Part paean to the Welsh language, part tour diary, it’s a scrapbook of flickering psychedelic folk and handheld shots of a landscape speeding by... Strange and at times a hit and miss but worth checking out if you are a fan of the music or history.

Whimsical.

The material is not particularly new. But Rhys is an entertaining guide and he meets some interesting people along the way...

It all adds up to a superior and rather touching music doc, likely to appeal to admirers of Vincent Moon’s work at La Blogotheque

Time Out

David Jenkins

The film ends up being a gentle and entertaining study of a man trying to make sense of how people remain connected to their birthplace. Beware, though, of one or two moments when the makers have gone off-message in the edit...

The Times

Kevin Maher

Although Rhys is clearly a gifted musician and an eccentric stage performer, he is something close to a charisma vacuum whenever he’s on camera. He mumbles a lot, speaks in half-finished sentences, and simply cannot carry this travelogue entirely on his shoulders.
