Unfolds like a slow-motion thriller, achieving a captivating kind of intimacy even as it maintains a chilly arm's-length remove from a cosmic mystery that no film can satisfyingly answer.
Though certainly ambitious and well-performed across the board, this has to be considered a bit of letdown from the clearly talented Swiss-German writer-director Simon Jaquemet.
The wildest film seen at Toronto, Swiss director Simon Jaquemet's dreamy and bewildering film is purposely enigmatic and consistently compelling.
Overall the movie feels like a miss.
The confusing passage from objective reality to mental delirium... reveals an immature director behind his images. [Full review in Spanish]
Jaquemet cycles through all this mystery at an insufferably slow pace with a drab aesthetic. Yes, there are some images to ponder over, but they never cohere together in a satisfying way.
It's often a perplexing film... mixing one part First Reformed to two parts The Killing of a Sacred Deer while, unfortunately, failing to provide the cogent themes or philosophy of either.
