“All things come to those who wait” is an apt truism about patience from Violet Fane, which holds even more truth when it’s in relation to Lucile Hadzihalilovic’s latest film, Evolution. Aside from the disorienting haunt of an acid-trip that is Enter The Void, Hadzihalilovic has moved fully into the realm of body-horror — and it looks grand.
IFC Midnight has just purchased the rights to release the film in the UK (this May) as well as the U.S. market sometime after.
Check out the moody trailer below:
If you aren’t scared yet, well, I just don’t think you are afraid of water, boys, and women.
In ‘Evolution ’, 10-year-old Nicolas lives with his mother in a village on a remote island inhabited solely by women and young boys. In a hospital overlooking the ocean, all the boys are subjected to a mysterious medical treatment. Only Nicolas questions what is happening around him. He senses that his mother is lying to him, and is determined to find out what she does with the other women at night, on the beach. What he discovers is the beginning of a nightmare into which he is helplessly drawn.
Reminiscent of Under the Skin, Evolution will surely push the boundaries of what we people are physically comfortable feeling and watching; even passively.
