    DON'T LOOK NOW meets APOCALYPSE NOW (with a pinch of Lars Von Trier's ANTICHRIST) in Fabrice Du Welz's truly unsettling VINYAN.

    Emmanuelle Béart and Rufus Sewell star as Jeanne and Paul, a married couple still grieving the loss of their young son in a tsunami six months prior. When Jeanne believes that she sees a fleeting glimpse of him on a grainy video taken very recently in the Burmese jungle, however, it sends them on an obsessive quest to try…

    Amazing tone and atmosphere established not just through wonderful cinematography and real exotic locations, but more so through the exceptional use of sound. It's a must to have the sound turned up real loud to get the full impact. This film struck a chord with me a few years ago and it's been impossible to forget. I wasn't sure if it would live up to that past experience but in fact it surpassed it. It's a hidden gem. One day…

    The films of Fabrice Du Welz occupy an uneasy borderline that makes them difficult to pin down (and no doubt even more difficult to market). His striking 2004 debut Calvaire, for example, used elements familiar from Deliverance-style survival horror to create a mythic meditation on performance and passion. His next film, Vinyan, turns a bare-bones ghost story into a reverie on grief, anguish and madness.

    Like Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now, Juan Antonio Bayona’s…

    No. 25 of the 30 Countries 2014 Challenge. See complete list.

    Vinyan is a slow starter. The story is quite interesting even from the start but it took a while to get going. Once it does however, it really gets going. There are some freaky and disturbing parts which I think will stay with me for some time. Also very well done was the tension building via music and sound effects which was really cool and really created an atmosphere.…

    Emmanuelle Beart, estás muy tremenda pero hasta tus morritos llegan cansar cuando una película se reduce a eso y poco más.

    Sin sentido en el que el calificativo "paranormal" sobra por todas partes excepto, quizás, para calificar la interpretación impenetrable de su protagonista, inexpresiva como ninguna. Una historia en la que no pasa nada!

    bizarre and could have been drawn out to be more thorough in its story, but to me, still satisfying. Necessary viewing if you're interested in all of Von Trier's influences that helped created Antichrist.
