Review

The latest film by Lucile Had?ihalilovic whose film Innocence was screened at the 2005 Jeonju International Film Festival. On a remote island where only women and young boys live, the boys are test subjects that receive treatment at a hospital. 10-year-old Nicholas starts questioning adults who medicate him and continue unnecessary treatment. He begins acting out on his own. The world in Evolution is incomprehensible while Manuel Dacosse’s cinematography produces breathtakingly beautiful images that strongly contrast the darker mood. It’s also a coming-of-age story of a boy who rebels against an oppressive system. There is no explanation for why there are only women and boys on this mysterious island where the values and virtues of the genre are clearly manifest. It won the Jury Prize and the Award for Cinematogaphy at San Sebastian International Film Festival. (JANG Byungwon)
