Canada, the colonial times: While she is tanning some skins, her
brother (James Kingstone) berates Hannah (Ariel Hansen) for not yet being
married at the overripe age of 23, he boasts about his "happy"
marriage. And then suddenly he's frozen in time and the devil in guise of a wolf (Apollo, voiced
by Jesse Inocalla) appears on the scene who knows the whole story: That
Hannah's brother's wife only had to marry him because he impregnated her
beforehands, and that she's actually in love with Hannah (and vice versa),
back when same sex love was still a cardinal sin - but he also offers a
way out ...
A story of the folk tale variety, this is just a
beautifully shot movie that's brought to life by its performances just as
much as by the impressive production design and landscapes and beautiful
camerawork. And refusing the story and postmodern trimmings actually makes
it ring true to this day.
