Review

A family of five lives in an isolated house near a lake. Alexi and his younger sister Hege are very close but their relationship enters into new situations by the visit of Jurgen. His irresistible charm, terrible jealousy and subsided love lead to moral turmoil. The film illustrates a story of perfect love and the loss of innocence. Without giving any clear answer, the film threatens the basics of human behavior. Grandrieux shows his original visual style in depicting the mystery of primitive spaces and human states. Blinking images, extremely bold close-ups, and brilliant use of color can be called as new dynamics of film language. As he did in his previous films, Sombre and A New Life, the director continues his pursuit of human body. With this film, Grandrieux took a bold step with his experiments in bold handhelds, extreme close-ups, and dimly interiors, which gave him praises of opening a new spectrum of weaving images.
