I loved it!!!
1 April 2018 | by cecelegySee all my reviews

I loved it!!! I felt that every little symbol and detail had its place without them being far-fetched or forced. I am totally honest here when I say I was not able to figure out the protagonist until the very end - in fact, I am not even sure today whether she was a psychopath or not. I think the film reflects very well on women's expectations today and, at the same time, it turns them completely upside down, while raising a lot of ethical questions as well: for a while, I'm taking the side of the oppressed protagonist, then the picture is slowly getting more complex and her depiction more layered as we are getting ahead in the film. I don't know why, perhaps due to the mythological element in the balcony scene, but the mood of Spring (2014) came to my mind. This is one of the most exciting movies of the year for me dramaturgy-wise. Granted, I really like weird movies :)
