A brutal assault changes Mariekes life. She leaves her familiar city rhythms for the solitude of a delapidated house in an empty countryside. Her irrational fears on the frozen farm are a constant struggle. As springs' orchestra begins, her curiosity for new things that cover the cold rot of winter pull her out of the suffocating interior of her mind. Slowly she accepts the help of John, her neighbour, but as the seasons change so does she. Written by
I saw the movie at the Berlin Film Festival yesterday. I didn't know anything about and hadn't even read the log line. After a couple of disappointing films at this years festival this movie really thrilled me. This is definitely one of the best movies I have seen for quite some time! It is the psychological portrait of a woman who is thrown off track by two successive twits of fate and tries to cope with it on her own. It is incredibly intense and feels so real!It is absolutely captivating and kept me on the edge of my seat. The lead actress is amazing and does a great job. The directing is brilliant and so are the editing, the sound, the music... Watch It!
