Swallow ★★★★

“Are you happy or are you pretending to be happy?"

Cherry wine lips, a sparkling rose face, neatly trimmed blonde hair and an utter emptiness within, such are the diabolical opposites which composes Hunter - a pregnant woman diagnosed with an extreme disorder. Swallow explores themes of self-worth, guilt, patriarchy and depression through a rebellious portrayal of domestic disintegration.

With terrific production values wherein every color literally pops out, it ranges from scenes that are dazzling to look and then to some which are horrendously warped. Swallow is a harrowing descent of an individual from normalcy to madness: a sheer freefall of exhilarating proportions.
