Saint Omer

Saint Omer ★★★★★

One of those films after which it feels weird to walk out of the theater and return to society where you're expected to be a normal guy instead of someone who just watched this.

Saw Saint Omer a while ago, still completely speechless. Simultaneously so calculated in its cinematic manners, which elegantly mix documentaristic realism and weighty, purposeful composition, and so raw in its complete lack of answers. Has you in its grip from the first minute and never lets go; the act of evaluating a story playing in front of you has never felt less neutral and less innocent. A monumental work.
