This is the second Lucile Hadzihalilovic film I've seen - Innocence is definitely worth a watch too. Both are really slow, sinister, coming-of-age films with beautiful shots and detail. She takes her time. Also she's married to Gaspar Noé.
Odd, unsettling, disturbing and beautiful. This might be a tale of a group of isolated ladies performing odd surgical experiments on young boys or it might be a tale of innocence lost, puberty, motherhood and reproduction. Lanzarote provides a perfect backdrop with its rocky volcanic black sand beaches and Evolution achieves a poetic beauty with its excellent underwater camerawork, locked-off wide angles and claustrophobic super close-ups.
If you love slow paced movies with great cinematography and little speak but much openness to interpretation, this is your thing.
Well, that happened. Or maybe it didn't. Maybe it was just a clam-induced fever-dream. While this was beautifully photographed and hypnotically crafted, it definitely felt more like an exercise than a finished work. Light on story and high on atmosphere, don't expect any answers by the time it's all done. A rewarding view for the cineaste, but not much here for the gorehound or the body-counter.
This film was so bad dident explain anythink no point in watching dont waste ur time
