Director: Lucile Hadzihalilovic
Starring: Max Brebant, Roxane Duran, Julie-Marie Parmentier, Mathieu Goldfeld
Synopsis: On an island inhabited by only women and young boys, young Nicholas discovers a corpse in the sea and begins to question his world as well as the purpose behind mandatory hospitalization for he and the other boys.
Notes: Have you been aching for a visually and contextually experimental follow-up to Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin or Shane Carruth’s Upstream Color? I believe we have it here. Lucile Hadzihalilovic is a long-time collaborator with renown Gaspar Noé, whose own films have been just as surreal in technique as well as imagery.
