Not sure what happened…went and got some clothes out of the dryer and all hell was breaking loose when I got back and I was confused, then the credits started rolling
Effective pregnancy/motherhood psychodrama. While there are some horror touchstones, its really the solid acting and elliptical editing of the narrative that carry this one.
Beautifully acted, atmospheric film that takes a sharp left into some brutal stuff. Great story and well made.
A user below said that if you leave the room and come back, you’ll have no idea what’s going on, and that’s true. This story unweaves like a braid, you do need to pay attention. But this is a dark story, and personally, I liked it.
A superb film with multiple layers interweaving, sometimes with grace, sometimes with violence. A remarkable achievement at every level.
