A very different beast than Smoczynska’s inspired man-eating mermaid musical, The Lure. A meditation on memory, what makes us us, trauma and whether we can come back from it. A beautiful film with a melancholic tinge. And when was the last time you saw a writer do double-duty as lead actress? Gabriela Muskela is terrific here. Fully on board with Smoczynska now too - she is definitely on my filmmakers to follow list.
