Like the lovechild of H.P. Lovecraft, David Cronenberg, and Andrzej (POSSESSION) Zulawski, EVOLUTION is an intoxicatingly mysterious, fascinating bit of fantasy/body horror, equal parts beautiful and unsettling.
The film focuses on a young boy growing up in a small, picturesque, rural seaside community, as he struggles to reconcile the strange events unfolding around him. Strange mutations, surgeries, and dark, slimy things are involved, though as a whole the film is tranquil and eerily beautiful.
What's going on here? You'll still have lots of questions to ponder when the film ends, though it certainly does tell a complete and satisfying (coming of age?) story. Patient fans of arty, ambiguous horror/sci-fi films should definitely check this out.
