Metaphor As Horror Is Powerful Cinema
4 August 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Reminiscent of Cocteau's poetically beautiful 1946 masterpiece, this remains a unique cinematic vision of a similar story that plays out in a purely surrealistic environment. With beautiful cinematography and production values, director Robert Beaucauge creates a unique vision of strange relationships and human longing. While on the surface a horror film, this is a motion picture unafraid to explore the darkest emotions of humanity within and never resorts to gratuitous blood. The state of the film's focus is heartbreaking and so intensely personal that at times we must look away as we experience the pain he suffers. The loneliness, that piercing existential burden and unfulfilled desire, are almost unendurable at times. While certainly flawed and not as polished as his later work, Beaucauge has brought to the screen a powerful vision of emptiness filled ultimately by love.
