One of the word-of-mouth successes of the year, Bait is an extraordinary independent British film. At one level it is a straightforward story about the conflict between Londoners moving to a Cornish village and a local fisherman whose way of life is threatened. What makes Mark Jenkin’s film remarkable is his use of black-and-white techniques that remind us of films from the silent era. ‘A breathtaking and glorious endeavour.’
