Beautiful cinematography
25 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Kaleina and Macneill are an excellent duo. The beautiful cinematography reflects the melancholic and often haunting nature of a couple, who, seemingly stranded in a small town (for want of a better life) and left to contend with the psychology of their waning relationship are brought to a very resonant climax that culminates with all the anxieties and desires that have challenged their relationship, in coincidence with an eclipse.

Andrew and Claire expect their getaway to upend the torment of their former life, but they instead find the stagnating and uncommunicative characters of the rural northwest distances them even further. Left in a torrent of indecision and desperation, the two seek solace by mingling with the local inhabitants only to find more disconnect from the blind neighbor (Asensio), whose tears are painstakingly real, and a little girl whose antics are precious until her innocence is shattered by her own curiosities.

There is a naked feeling to the whole piece, like a stripped orchestra, leaving us with the lost and lonely sentiments of a humanity that can no longer live in harmony no matter how far they try to venture from their indiscretions.

I look forward to seeing more from Kaleina and Macneill.
