Storyline

Verena is a young nurse hired to help a mute young heir within an isolated castle in Tuscany. The more she observes the boy, the more Verena becomes convinced he has fallen under the spell of a powerful and otherworldly persona trapped in the castle's stone walls, one that seems to be quickly approaching on her.

Goofs

When Verena cries demanding to the voice on the wall for answers, she breaks part of the wall and we can see how the pieces fall to the ground. Within a few minutes of that scene, Jakob is lying on the floor leaning against the wall and the floor is completely clean. See more »

Quotes

Verena: [Verena is talking to Jakob who is mute] I once knew a boy who thought he could hear his dead sister through the teeth of an old comb. He would sit with it for hours, listening and whispering his secrets. He was as sure of what he heard as you are. The mind is capable of extraordinary things. It is your mind that is speaking to you, Jakob, nothing else.

Lovely to look at, but absolutely a bore to sit through
2 May 2017 | by derekjagerSee all my reviews

I think this is being mis-marketed as a ghost story but it isn't. It isn't a homage to TURN OF THE SCREW, either. Yes, it looks great, has a terrific Gothic mood, but for 30 minutes, nothing happens. Then something sort of happens but it's not ghostly...and then nothing happens and then it ends. The ending is "nice" but an hour into this film's 90 mins, I really wondered if/when ANYTHING was going to happen.

Again, lovely to look at, well-written and directed, but a bore to sit through.
