Synopsis

When young Katalin is driven out by her husband and the whole village, she has no choice but to set off to find the real father of her little son Orbán. The long journey across the Carpathians takes her to a place to which she had vowed never to return.

Our take

An ingenious first feature from maverick British filmmaker Peter Strickland, this low-budget thriller was awarded Best Sound Design at the Berlin Film Festival. The eerie, mountainous landscapes of Romania offer a moody backdrop to this atmospheric, disquieting, and bewitching tale of revenge.
