a different kind of feeling
4 March 2013 | by (Vanuatu) – See all my reviews

artistic and effectively photographic, this movie is a subtle entry into the darkest hours of adolescence. two motherless brothers move to stay with their aunt in a bucolic French village. they are quite different from each other. Eoin is boyish, adventurous, easy going and extroverted, while Dara is more secluded, mysterious and endowed with a different set of views. their age is an ominous one, a point of no return, between childhood and adolescence. they meet Bella and her brother, who share their age and some of their precocious behavior. for boys it is time to explore their dark side, their feisty nature, for girls it is a time of emotional turmoil and escape from their bodies. Dara becomes enamored with Bella, but his fixation turns in a different direction as the girl doesn't really share his emotional identity. this leads to a string of incidents that vary from dangerously tranquil to subdued violence and finally ending in murder.

the photography is well executed, rending concise and almost unlikely to capture scenes. the scene after the banquet that becomes the image of pure entropy of human life, the light filtered by a spider web, the water trickling on white bodies and the genuine sadness embedded in the face of the actor portraying Dara is something that cannot be missed. it comes with amazing performances from Jack Gleeson, Imogen Jones and David Brazil. director Alicia Duffy was unknown to me until this film, but it doesn't surprise me that the main producer is Jonathan Cavendish, who also was on the crew of Shrooms, another piece that cast Jack Gleeson.

interesting and melancholic, this was over all a good watch.
