An intimate world wrapped up in bass clarinet music. A solitary, mysterious woman whose gasps are punctuated by water drop sounds. A threatening curtain slides across. Something is not quite right with what we are looking at.

Storyline

On the other side of a shaking door a rag doll inside a man's black shoe. The woman takes him to bed. Darkness and nightmares. She sends herself a message in Morse code. Next morning, after watering an onion, she starts a loving relationship with him. But suddenly, in a dreamlike state, she feels anger and throws him away. She leaves him in a narrow corridor and vanishes without trace climbing up the walls. When she returns home, however, something moves her to bring him back. He's full of thorns now. Then a healing takes place... Written by Marcel Garbi

Thought provoking
8 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

The Spooky Healing is a symbolic, surreal and thought provoking film. I've watched it several times and each time I see it I discover something I missed the last time.

People say a picture is worth a thousand words well this film is absolutely no exception. The director has managed to portray in a language neutral way (through the use of visuals and sound) a rich tapestry of emotion that will touch something in most of us.

The camera work, soundtrack and acting mesh together perfectly. I look forward to seeing more work by director Marcel Garbi.

Highly recommended.
