A story of Eliska and her daughter, starting a new life in a remote house, with the father away on business, as the mother claims. After the lie is exposed, their relationship begins to wither. At that time, the mythical Noonday Witch begins to materialize. She is coming closer and closer and the question is posed: is the danger real or is it all in the mother's head?Written by
A beautiful cinematography. Good performances. Seductive potential. No real story. A mother and her daughter in a village. A new beginning. Large slices of folklore. And something is lost in the effort to suggest more than show. A film about the circle of fear but it is just a large puzzle, with too different pieces, who could be only imagined as final picture but not made. Something remains in the sketch status. You have all the elements of story but the plot itself is missing. A film at the middle of way, without any direction. Beautiful, interesting, giving the flavor of old Central European myths and legends. But, unfortunately,nothing more.
