Storyline

Young brothers Tom and Benjamin travel to Sweden to spend their vacation with their estranged father, who they have barely seen since their parents divorced. Tom, the younger of the two, has a premonition that something bad will happen. Their strange and solitary father, who is unable to sleep, insists that Tom, like him, has a gift for feeling things which aren't quite normal. Tom's frightening visions set the stage for the bizarre and terrifying events to follow, when the three head to a house in a vast remote forest.

The actors' awesome performance saves the boat from sinking.
20 January 2017 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The least we can say about Gilles Marchand is that he likes to mull over his projects: seven years passed between his "Who killed Bambi?" (2003) and the well-polished "Black Heaven" (2010) and six years later, he makes his come-back with this fantasy-thriller. In this new movie, Gilles Marchand travels to Sweden where the immensity of the nearly surreal scenery contrasts with the darkness that does not stop to infect this idyllic environment. The shots, that go from close-ups to extreme wide shots, help to feed this unease that we cannot grasp and that finally takes over. "Into the forest" took a commitment to suggest, raise doubts and leave leeway to some (maybe too much) interpretation and that is its strength, but also its huge weakness: even if we understand that some elements feed the fantasy, sometimes we feel that the plot has been built into a void that the spectators have to fill themselves. Technically speaking, the movie is quite original and the actors' awesome performance saves the boat from sinking.
