| Doesn't Live Up to Potential
I love finding hidden gems on services like Amazon Prime, and I try not to let low ratings scare me away.

This film just didn't have enough spark to make it worth recommending.

A woman named Nina moves back to Europe (after a childhood in the US) following the death of her mother. Socially isolated, Nina strikes up a friendship with a local woman named Katya which quickly morphs into a romance. But Nina's belief that she is a witch (inherited from her mother through blood) begins to knock things off the rails.

This is a great premise! And I did like the way that they showed the romance develop between Nina and Katya. The two actresses have good chemistry. But the film just doesn't know where to go in its third act. It was already kind of slow and low-key (something I don't always mind), but it lacks any punch in it's final twenty-five minutes. There was one moment at the end that I thought was powerful, but by then it was pretty much too little, too late.

If you are interested, though, it's worth noting that the movie is only like 70 minutes long, so you aren't exactly throwing away a whole evening if you want to check it out.
