Storyline

It is a story about different worlds - about a man and a woman, about city and countryside, about future and past. It is also a story about animals and their killers, about deep and short-lived passion and the ancient mystery of woman. It is a story interwoven with visions and light smile, a story about a conventional love triangle and metamorphoses into animals, a story about love as a misunderstanding and misunderstandings created by passion.

Pretty cool
1 July 2015 | by (Tucson) – See all my reviews

I found this weird one, out of desperation, when I was sleepless one night and could find nothing on antenna TV. Hulu offered it as freebie for those, like me, too cheap to pay. But, as happens once in a great while with their obscure foreign films, it turned out to be a good one.

It kind of sneaks up on you -- mainly due to the photography and framing. Its a bit of a weird story line, but Plain Jane Mona, Kristine Belicka's character, turns out to be quite a beauty. The writer/director Inara Kolmane, with the help of co-writer Arvis Kolmanis, teases the viewer with the promise of Mona. It's a curious art, this teasing with desire, very much like building suspense in crime or detective fiction.

Anyway, Komane and Kolmanis are quite good at it. And one finds oneself wondering if all the white trash country folk and long-haired butchers are going to get out of the way and let Mona have her poke. Aha! You can't find out if you don't watch it. From Latvia (shades of Beata Undine) and Iceland. Pretty cool.
