An Interesting Sci-Fi Metaphor
28 November 2019 | by jacobywarnerSee all my reviews

I found this short film to be a great debut for French director Julia Ducournau, she uses a seemingly simple mutation as a metaphor for the development and changes that women go through as they mature into adults. The casting of Garance Marillier proved to be nothing less than perfect as she also makes her acting debut, and hopefully this is the start in a long and successful career.

They will also go on to collaborate together on the 2016 film Raw which also tackles many puberty based themes.

I gave this film a 7/10 because the story is solid, but the filming techniques are simply forgettable.
