It may lack some of the earthy kick of his previous two films, but Ivul still shows Kötting as an outsider force to be reckoned with.
Ivul is least interesting in its narrative impulse; it's more redolent as a tone poem of landscape, bodies and madness.
The movie will baffle and disconcert some. Others will find it a paradoxically realist visual poem about families and hurt feelings.
It's a film about improvisation: the higgledy-piggledy, bruised-and-abraded, hopeful-but-haunted ways we come up with to stumble through life and around our loved ones.
Although Andrew Kötting's film has the potential for something great it seems that over -thinking and too much focus on style has taken away from the content and unfortunately will not be everybody's cup of tea.
While the movie's themes are full of potential, their dull and superficial execution makes it difficult to stay focused.
Unusual and unsettling, this is a frequently intriguing film with strong performances and distinctive direction, though the frustrating lack of focus in the story means that it lacks emotional impact.
