Startling and Twisted
22 January 2019 | by terrancegoreSee all my reviews

I approached this film by Fabrice du Welz, with circumspection but I decided that he couldn't deliver something as twisted and difficult to watch as Calvaire, his first film.

How wrong was I. One of many films based on the real life "Lonely Hearts Killers", I challenge you to find one as affecting as this. Disturbing. Unhinged. Crazy. Just a few of the words that sum up this film and the relationship depicted in it.

Lola Duenas' turn, as Gloria, is as startling as it is twisted.
