The dark legend of the young woman Albrun and her struggle to preserve her own sanity, and tries to explore the fine line between ancient magic, faith and madness at a time when pagan beliefs in witches and nature spirits spread fear and terror in the minds of the rural population.Written by
This is not an ordinary movie. In an aestetic and moody way it can be compared to "Walhalla Rising" by Nicolas Winding Refn. The heavy use of chiaroscuro effects give such a powerful feel and quality to the pictures. In fact the stills appear like Rembrandt paintings. The very gloomy mood is perfectly supported by the very slow pace and symbolic, shamanistic elements.
In parts it felt like an LSD Trip that made me write my first review on IMDB. Highly recommended for people who have seen it all.
