The reason this movie caught my attention was because it was tagged as sci-fi on IMDB. This is a genre I’m very much into. It is also a very, as so many other story driven movies, spoiler prone genre. And that’s why I did not read further about the movie, but just fired it up and saw what happened.
Scarlet Johansen is eminent in this movie. She has space to act, a anti cliché role and a setting different from what most Hollywood movies can muster.
The pace and the direction of the movie is slow paced and arty, slow long shots, with an insisting sound scape that crawls under your skin.
I’d consider this more of a elaborate short film than a full fletched sci-fi as we’ve so ever used to. But then again. It’s super awesome to see how sub-stories can be told through this genre for instance.
The movie takes place in Scotland which works very well, both visually but also story wise.
I liked it and it kind of opened my eyes for Jonathan Glazer, and it also did carry on to watch Sexy Beast from 2000, which I remember hearing about but never got around to watching.
