Storyline

Split is the surreal and epic journey a young woman takes to claim her own darkness and sexuality so she can stop putting it into the hands of her abusive lover. When Inanna, a young actress, becomes obsessed with a mask maker, she sacrifices parts of her life in order to win his love. At the same time she enters a mythic journey in the theater that blurs her performance, her dreams and her real life and results in a provocative and powerful confrontation that frees them both.

Shedding Light on Complex Relationships
18 October 2017 | by adalaurSee all my reviews

Having read about this film as part of a few film festivals I was intrigued and yet hesitant to watch it myself. I knew that it was about a very emotionally challenging relationship and experiences. As things happen, it resurfaced right at the right time, following a break up and challenging custody agreement process I was in. This movie does not shy away from the challenges and experiences we as humans go through in the attempt to relate, love and build lives together with other humans. And in particular it brings to the forefront how our innocence, expectations, earlier emotional wounds greatly impact how we exist and relate to others. For women, I believe this movie begins to create a way to peal off layers we have put on to face the world, to ultimately heal our own wounds by acknowledging and accepting them as wounds.

I would say for any woman that has had a relationship with challenges in relating, which I feel is most relationships (also between friends and family) this film begins to create a means of talking about why it can be so difficult to be in relationship.

The scenes from the theatrical play group within the movie are so cinematically beautiful and the female nudity which is presented is so raw and real and natural.
