Euphoria (Lisa Langseth, 2018) 2/10
Extremely dour film is a talkfest between two estranged sisters who thrash out the past with bitter recriminations the order of the day. A woman (Eva Green), dying of cancer, invites her sister (Alicia Vikander) whom she hasn't seen in years to a European countryside "resort" (the film was shot in stunning Bavaria). Gradually it is revealed that the hotel is a place where people come to die by being provided a drink with a powerful sedative inducing sleep and death. The sisters argue, fight, laugh and cry finally coming to terms with the dilemma. As a slightly lively aside to the dull drama between the two leading ladies is an eccentric patient (Charles Dance) prone to tantrums and the hotel's host and companion (Charlotte Rampling) who offers sturdy advice and a shoulder to cry on. Death, hardly an exciting subject, proves to be a death knell for this film. Skip it.
