review by
Mike Haberfelner

After the death of his wife, his daughter Ethel (Emily Price) was writer Harry's (Jeffrey Charles Richards) everything - but then she dies being run over by a car, and his world shatters around him. At the suggestion of his agent (Nicholas Ball), Harry moves to his house in France to write his memoirs, and at first he doesn't seem to be getting anywhere, until he meets Eloise, a girl who has wondered onto his premises looking for her dog, and who's just the splitting image of Ethel (and thus also played by Emily Price). And after the two get off on the wrong foot at first, Harry gets more and more taken in by the girl, so much so that he invites her over to take swims in his pool, and he has long conversations with her, whose dad she says is also a writer. But while his days brighten up because of her, his nights grow ever darker, as he keeps wandering the premises driven by God-knows-what, and more than once, he breaks down somewhere outside and usually Eloise picks him up the next day to help him home. But at least his memoirs get along really well - or so Harry says, as it soon becomes apparent than quite a few things in Harry's life other than his grief are not quite right ...

 

A very interesting mood piece that really manages to get you into the muddled mind of its protagonist and make his haunting obsessions yours - which if of course thanks to solid writing, a directorial effort that intentionally takes its time to develop things rather than bank on spectacle, lush cinematography (helped by wonderful locations but a bit marred by a bit too much shaky camera work), and of course a first rate cast. It's pretty much a trip you won't easily forget - but by no means expect this to be a feel-good movie.
