Spadina Theatre - Alliance Française

Luxembourg/Belgium | Christian Neuman | 2019 | 89 min
As Christian Neuman’s taut, stylish thriller opens, Regine, a psychologically fragile young woman, hides in the city, far from the dark and forbidding countryside of her childhood. She’s struggling to escape the traumatic events of her family’s past, especially the disastrous home birth experience of her brother Isaac, which led to her mother’s insanity and Isaac’s apparent death. When Regine’s grandmother is murdered years later, a disturbing question rises to the surface: is Isaac still alive, looking for revenge against a family which he feels has rejected him? Driven to heal the wounds of the past, Regine returns to face her family’s secrets and guilt, as well as her own role in these events. Featuring impressive performances by Amber Anderson (Emma, White Lie) and the legendary Udo Kier. In English.
“Unclassifiable … It’s a horror film, an experimental work, a psychological thriller … The costumes created by Virginia Ferreira—and those worn by Régine in particular—are so elaborate they tell a parallel story all of their own.” Guilhem Caillard, Cineuropa
