Great cinematography !
5 April 2012 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Truly great cinematography, at a minimum cost, with unknown actors. Can it be? Sure. Just sit comfortably, relax and let this film tune up with your breath. Tamar van den Dop delivered a hollow drama, with an approach that brings to mind Lars von Trier at his best. She is presenting images of her story with unparalleled power, filmed in a minimal way that underlines every single moment, every single shot, every breath the characters take. The story itself is a very powerful one, carrying echoes from ancient Greek tragedies. A love story, the most common story in all times, takes off here and grabs us in a turn no one could imagine. Brilliant. Besides the poetic images, the use of sound and music pieces is Dop's secret weapon. Some of the best secanses I've ever seen, have been filmed with utmost care, superbly designed and executed. Really, you must see for yourself. Last but not least, the actors. Halina Reijn and Joren Seldeslachts are perfectly casted to give flesh and bones to two difficult characters, under the exceptional guidance of van den Dop.

A very original and unconventional point of view, the new era in cinematography. Don't miss it.
