Storyline

A brutal assault changes Mariekes life. She leaves her familiar city rhythms for the solitude of a delapidated house in an empty countryside. Her irrational fears on the frozen farm are a constant struggle. As springs' orchestra begins, her curiosity for new things that cover the cold rot of winter pull her out of the suffocating interior of her mind. Slowly she accepts the help of John, her neighbour, but as the seasons change so does she. Written by Anonymous

Well done, but not entertaining
3 January 2010 | by daniel-mantioneSee all my reviews

If you are a director making a movie for a small market, and want to make a movie that is not intended for mass entertainment, you end up without any budget. "Kan door huid heen" is such a movie that was made with very little resources, and it shows. Nevertheless, through good directing, clever use of sound, and very good acting, this movie still achieves excellent quality; it brings over the experiences of the main character extremely well.

While very well done with limited resources, I missed something watching this movie: Entertainment. After watching the movie I didn't feel like I had a pleasant 1 1/2 hours, more that I had watched the terrible misery of someone. While I have no problems with artistic films, they should at least to attempt to entertain the viewer in a basic way. That is completely lacking here and prevents me giving any good mark for this movie.
