But when they embark on a perilous journey together, his devotion is put to the test as Gloria’s dangerous unpredictability gradually starts to surface.
I would have seen this film without knowing the director’s name, i would have guessed this was a Fabrice Du Welz creation. You find in this beautiful and eerie movie all the ingredients he puts in nearly every of his films. the deep depiction of the inner human soul, the dark side of the man’s spirit. This director is a very sensitive man always at one hundred percent involved in each of his films. A very dedicated film maker and certainly not a simple yes man. Bewitching, poisonous, hypnotic the three words that describe the best the films of this awesome free director.
