User Reviews

A creepy, expressionistic fairy-tale.
17 March 2012 | by katiecarmanSee all my reviews

Tonjia Atomic has created with this short a great, creepy fable-like fairytale, filled with expressionistic tableaux and bizarre characters, reminiscent of the work of Jan Svankmeyer, and old German expressionist directors such as F.W. Murnau or Robert Wiene.

The lead character in the film, played by director Tonjia Atomic, is set at once at the beginning of the film on a journey through a haunted forest, where she's met repeatedly with ever increasing obstacles, one of which she discovers is much more sinister than at first appears. Events turn in an unexpected way, and the Director delves into some haunting territory, deftly using highly stylized, expressionistic shots and clever editing to conjure some unforgettable imagery.
