Storyline

In a world that is increasingly dependent on electricity, a power outage seems like an awful predicament. Mankind is using electricity for the past 140 years, but still, we can't imagine ourselves living in a world deprived of electricity. In such a difficult and dreary situation found themselves a father and his two daughters, after a seemingly normal power outage lingered on, changing the lives of everyone in the region. What was the reason for this outage? Is it regional, or does it affect the whole country? No one really knows and as time passes, the family will have to put to the test its survival skills, adaptability and endurance, but most of all, the integrity of the familial bonds. Written by Nick Riganas

A Very Good Movie
28 September 2016 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This movie tells us the story of building a new life without ordinary acquisitions of the modern world as well as the basic human needs such as safety, sheltering and hunger. The post-electricity set-up is very simple in an isolated environment and we do not know the reasons but this is not important at all. The main focus of the movie is on human emotions and reactions.

Just like the characters, we feel unsafe and helpless throughout the entire movie. The movie wants us to ask ourselves some basic questions about the concepts of home, family and society.

Cinematography and acting are also great. Page and Ellen are perfect in their leading roles as well as the chemistry between them.

This movie is not about saving humanity from a power disaster or an alien attack. It is not trying to set remarkable hero stories or highlighted character speeches. However it is quite a good movie which has a story to tell and some questions to ask.
