REVIEWS

 

The Hollywood Reporter  ( EN )  2013.10.15

"...An assured debut that should attract attention on the fest circuit and connect with musical tastemakers."

 

Fandor  ( EN )  2013.10.12

"The film concerns the rituals and tensions of one particular homestead... It all feels universal, and crucially, exportable."

 

Critic.de  ( DE )  2014.01.23

"This stylish restraint of an extremely economical director's debut not only creates a silent, beguilingly beautiful world on the screen, but also a silent admiration at the cinema."

MAKING OF THE FILM

 

Fandor Keyframe  ( EN )  2015.01.22

"Taking place in a richly imagined dystopian future mysteriously bereft of the written or spoken word, Simon-Kennedy's postmodern silent movie depicts the adolescent awakenings of an inquisitive boy whose well-ordered world is turned upside down when he meets a free-spirited girl."

 

Directors Notes  ( EN )  2015.02.20

"In a film of this nature the score carries extra weight and Hjaltalin's beautiful compositions not only underscore the onscreen action but usher in different movements in the narrative like an orchestral symphony."
