Movie Info

The Forest of the Lost Souls is a dense and remote forest, Portugal's most popular place for suicide. In a summer morning, two strangers meet within the woods. Ricardo (Jorge Mota) is a sad old man, who gave up on life when his older daughter, Irene (Lilia Lopes), took her life in a romantic pact gone wrong in the glacier lake that rests hidden deep in the forest. Carolina (Daniela Love) is an eccentric, unstable young girl who finds all things related to death are fun. As bumping into each other puts them off killing themselves, they decide to go for a walk to discover The Forest of the Lost Souls and see what they will find. As they walk deeper into the woods, they get to know each other and become friends: but one of them is not being honest, one of them is a dark and horrible person.

  • Filmmaker José Pedro Lopes shows a deep understanding of sadness, loneliness, depression, and the feelings that leads some people to suicide.

    April 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite great cinematography and an ethereal score, underdeveloped characters and a mediocre script turn this thought-provoking examination of suicide into a tedious slasher flick.

    October 29, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • Forest is awash in moody atmospherics that constantly maintain discomfort, whether in the form of tonally adverse natural ambience against the frequently shrill score ...
