Someone with amnesia discovering dark secrets must be one of the corniest cinematic clichés going, but Polish-set co-production Fugue manages to torque this material in a newish direction.
Its controlled expansiveness of tone, psychology and camera mark its helmer - invaluably aided by writer-star Gabriela Muskała - as a stylist of considerable, unpredictable finesse.
As compelling as it is to watch this splintered family grapple with the futility of trying to retrace their steps... the film has so little faith in the process that it can only trudge forward until it's time to admit defeat.
Like The Lure, Fugue is brilliant. Smoczynska...gives us complicated female characters who smirk, fuck, and f*ck sh*t up.
Fugue transforms into a rather striking sophomore offering, cementing its author as one of our finest emerging international voices.
I found myself lulled into sleep, fatigued by countless scenes of evasive opaqueness and stilted kitchen sink conversations that make for a film that I strongly doubt will live on outside of the festival circuit.
An assured and gripping work, animated by the same intense visual poetry of [Smoczynska's] earlier film.
Though the mood is generally odd, there's a reticence to exploit the psychological tensions that leaves the narrative feeling watery and washed out.
A poised, consistently intriguing combination of suspense with a timely consideration of a woman's journey towards self realisation.
