Storyline

When Lucas Frantz invites his friends to visit his hometown Village de Ruiflec, they head in two cars to spend the weekend. The driver Hugo Kerimba, Marion Valeyre, Stan and his girlfriend Katia Brezinsky follows the car of Lucas, David Fontana, his girlfriend Lila Paredes, Marion's estranged sister Emma Valeyre and Mathias through the lonely winding road in a rainy night. Out of the blue, Hugo steps on the gas and overtakes the other car. Sooner, Lucas, David, Lila, Emma and Mathias find Hugo's car left on the road with the doors open and the passengers missing. They walk to Ruiflec to find shelter and a telephone to call the other group. But they learn that they are trapped in Ruiflec and an evil entity does not allow them to leave the village.

Lost In Translation Of Time

Not a bad film. Nothing to do with a pop corn movie for Saturday evenings with a bunch of friends. It's actually an absorbing, intriguing but also unfortunately confusing feature, as we see today in many horror and crime movies. Twists within twists, and I don't tell about flashbacks within flashbacks...

I admit I am lost with all this. Perhaps I am too much cartesian. Or not smart enough.

This films begins in a way that make you think of Michael Mann's THE KEEP,where German soldiers in WW2 have to fight against an evil spirit. But the picture continues in a different direction. There are some lengths, but it's an interesting movie.

Try it.
