A bit of a strange one
3 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is basically a two-character play involving an overbearing, crazy mother (not a 'crazzzy mutha') who keeps her daughter cooped up in the house, home schools her, tells her thinly veiled threatening stories, and basically has her captive. However, puberty is on it's way and is manifesting itself in the form of a disappearing stranger whom only the daughter can see. If that's the case, however, who's sending strange love letters to the girl?

Sonata isn't easy to sit through - It's gonna be a bore for fans of gory horror, or for fans of people who like films to have any kind of pace to them. On the other hand, if you fancy something different, you might enjoy this one. It's weirdly played out, and deliberately slow, but there's a sense of dread and mystery about it that makes it watchable. There is even the odd fright thrown in, which is perhaps why it's marketed as a horror. The girl has obviously been driven a bit mad by her mother's smothering, and the mother herself is also pretty insane, trying to protect her daughter from the world and failing miserably. I found it worth a watch to see how things played out, and enjoyed it, but be warned, it's not the most action packed film ever.

Good for a change of pace, and well made for a low budget film.
