Storyline

After the death of his strictly religious parents, forlorn young Darkly gets lost in the woods. A truck driver, Jude, rescues the exhausted man, who has only a bible for comfort. He brings him to the house of Callie and Clay, two lovers who live in the forest. While Clay is away in the forest, beautiful Callie nurses Darkly back to health, and he develops an obsession with her that is totally contrary to his upbringing - a sexual obsession. When Clay returns home and Darkly sees the two lovers kiss, it is too much for him. Every night he hears them making love. Darkly's descent into madness has begun... An extremely dramatical and exciting ending! Written by Frank Wallner <wallnerf@informatik.tu-muenchen.de>

An American independent that doesn't let you down

In this film there's all the ingredients for a good thriller. And, above all, movie making that feels fresh. Striking editing, good music, fine acting and excellent direction (by Philip Ridley, a name I'll keep in mind).

The reason I saw the film in the first place - Viggo Mortensen has a supporting role as mute husband to the nymph (Ashley Judd). Brendan Fraser shows that he doesn't only can play the handsome young man. He does a phenomenal role portrait in the difficult title role.

Darkly Noon is an unpredictable film that surely haven't got the audience and critique it deserves. It made me think of such films as _Shining, The (1980)_(qv) and _Enfaldige mördaren, Den (1982)_(qv).
