Storyline

Three half-sisters, after being invited to their father's lake house to meet him and each other for the first time, are each questioned by a local sheriff to explain the events that took place leading up to the discovery of their father floating dead in the lake. Using a Rashomon effect, each sister gives a slightly different account of the events, with each version pointing a finger at a different sister, while the sheriff must sort through the details to find out what really happened. What he discovers in the end is not what he expected. Written by Anonymous

Rashômon in Amber Lake
4 July 2012 | by (Beijing) – See all my reviews

Amber Lake is fun enough to watch. It takes me a while to find a thought-provoking film on such a low budget but with good quality. Three half-sisters all named Amber are invited to the cottage in Amber Lake by their estranged father who, two days later, is found dead near the lake. Three Ambers are interviewed separately by the local sheriff. Each one of them tells a different story for what happened. Without a doubt, Amber Lake is inspired by the masterpiece Rashômon, but it has its own flavour. I recommend this film to those who are into watching thought-provoking thrillers that you will never find out the truth until the very end. 6.8/10 for a nicely made independent film.
