Did You Know?


The film's Welsh title, "Y Llyfrgell" (The Library), is the same as that of the original novel on which the film is based. The Welsh word llyfrgell literally means "book cell". Fflur Dafydd (the author of the novel and scriptwriter of the film) has explained how - that resonance being absent from the English word "library" - the film's producers took the decision to use the longer title "The Library Suicides" when referring to the film in English.

An entertaining library evening.
4 November 2016 | by fustbariclationSee all my reviews

I'm pretty sure it's the first entirely Welsh film I've seen. I rather enjoyed it. Being quite cheerful, in parts, it wasn't quite as Welsh as it could have been.

A library is an excellent setting for a film with a low budget -- yet another good reason for libraries to continue to exist.

Twins lend themselves to interesting films, often for quite surprising reasons.

I guessed, correctly, that the library was in Aberystwyth - clearly being bitten by a donkey somewhere helps fix the place in one's memory.

I hope there'll be more from this director.
