Unusual narrative, unique surreal approach
5 July 2010 | by selnedaSee all my reviews

I was very glad to have the opportunity to watch this movie. Nowadays nonlinear narrative is often used just to puzzle and surprise the viewer. But "Lodo" (Mud) uses a particular, unique narrative to explore the functioning of human mind, and to describe the feelings and emotions within a human soul.

In addition, this film is far from being intellectual, which is quite common in unconventional films. The fresh, direct film structure goes right to your heart if you open your eyes and let the film go into your senses.

The way the film deals with the memories from childhood and teenage is also quite appealing and inspiring. In particular, when the teen girls meet in the beach, or when the brunette girl goes into the forest, are outstanding moments of the film.

The work of the lead actress is noteworthy, and contributes very much to the overall strength of the film.

I would suggest to film lovers to have an eye on this original film.
