| For lovers of Arthouse film
This film was made for only $85k? That's impressive. Exactly what you want from an indie arthouse- strange plot, unique style of filming, witty dialogue. You've got to pay attention in order to follow along because the film moves fast as it answers most of your questions. Opening scene is very clever: from dialogue to the set details it suggests the tone of the directors intent and a deliciously twisted sense of humor. Acting is very strong. The lead actresses entire performance is of a mute. She looks like a mermaid (different and you can't place where she's from). Obviously instantly captivated by her looks, but become emotionally invested through her very strong silent performance (daring on the directors end and impressive on the actresses). Supporting cast is very Girl Interruptedesque and brings lightness to the film. Most memorable of the supporting is the ghost. She barely speaks but also conveys a strong physical performance. Interesting and effective choice on the directors part to keep this duos performances nonverbal. The main nurse gives an honest memorable performance. Good casting. The film has strong feminist/women empowerment tones, good vs evil of human nature, and a feel good ending. I had to watch it twice: lots to unpack in this movie. Overall impressive film, great acting, can't believe the budget so please share links to confirm it.
