An enigmatic, visually stunning, but uneven parable about the rape and attempted murder of a young girl in a tiny Alpine community.
Novice filmmaker Markus Blunder just lets the violence snowball all the way down a slippery slope.
A one note and tedious thriller with a misogynist undertone that couldn't salvage an attempted dramatic "poetic justice" finale.
But ultimately, Autumn Blood, which proceeds at a pace that could be equally described as measured or glacial...feels less like a fully realized film than a half-imagined idea for one.
Striking scenery, novel storytelling style, wasted on a poorly executed and pervy exploitation thriller
This debut feature film of the writer and the director Markus Blunder is probably a drama thriller with the shortest dialogue in the film industry history. Very artsy with excellent photography it can take you very close to the edge on many levels, I bet you'll be tempted to walk away! But you will stay... and this movie will, no doubt, leave an impression on everyone watching it! The directing was heavy on the viewer, acting was out of this world, but there are few editing mistakes which makes me wonder why was there so much attention given to the photography but not the continuity of the scenes. The eyes were pleased all the time, the mind wasn't!
In the unique atmosphere, this story is introducing us to a family living an idyllic in a rustic cabin in a remote mountain region of Austria. But in an incident which will be understood much later in the movie, the father gets killed, and the mother with the older girl and a younger boy keeps living and slowly fading away. The brother and sister must endure unfathomable difficulties in their struggle to stay together when their mother passes away, and they are left to their own devices. They decide to bury their mother without notifying the authorities and keep cashing the checks, and simply finding themselves at the mercy of nature and their fellow villagers - which are not merciful bunch. When the sister is raped more than once, the siblings are forced to quickly grow up in order to survive and stay together...
If you can swallow a moody cinematography that is equally beautiful and haunting, with extremely tight and elemental screenplay between the bunch of inbreeds, evocative soundtrack and menacing performances from Swedish actors Peter Stormare and Gustaf Skarsgård, the reward will be Sophie Lowe and her performance! You will never forget this movie - for whatever reason that could be.
