Psychodynamic feminist Sunyata
2 September 2020 | by JakobKarboeSee all my reviews

The movie has a distinct and warm vibe, but dark at the same time. The film is very dreamy, and it feels like I was going deeper within the dreamworld, as the happenings within became more absurd. The dream state here is a lot more wavy and natural then how it is done in inception tho, here it is not too clear what layer of dreaming we're on. It made me think of psychodynamic theory and also had some very interseting inteconnectedness ideas.

The acting was quite good, I was heavly amused by weird gaze acting and the strong female protagonist was very cool. The only thing that wasn't that good was the editing or special effects. The first time the monster is revealed I was kinda taken back by the film and sort off fell away from the immersion. It was also some abrupt cutting. Might have been an artistic move tho.

So it's a wonderful story if one is open enough to follow, there is a nice tone to the look and setting of the film.
