Really liked this Croatian family drama. It has a noir feel that puts you in a constant state of tension, which contrasts w/ the paradise-like setting in an interesting way. Ultimately it's about a young woman navigating a world stacked against her.
A secret pirate island full of stolen treasure emerges from the water after a volcanic eruption & William Schallert (a personal fav of mine) schemes to get the booty for himself. Rare public screening!
The key to enjoying this film is to think about it enough to follow the plot but not *so much* that you start to have questions. Take it on faith that it all works otherwise you'll lose a week of your life to making diagrams trying to sort it out.
Watching The Shining forwards & backwards at the same time challenges you to find your own meaning in the chaos. Psychic Teens just rocked it! I can't imagine a more perfect soundtrack. Thanks Cinedelphia Film Festival!
