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.

Critic Reviews for The Forest of the Lost Souls (A Floresta das Almas Perdidas)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

In a way, this movie is like a tone-poem, tracing the contours of people so sick of themselves that they yearn for total erasure.

It becomes something of a slasher film, in which the stalker's sneakiness once or twice comes close to self-parody - but the tone is far from comic, and to some extent the life has drained from the movie.

August 1, 2018 | Full Review…

A nasty and impressive little thriller that goes about its business with ruthless cinematic efficiency.

July 4, 2017 | Full Review…

The Forest of the Lost Souls is an impressive debut and I suspect will find its audience in those filmgoers who appreciate cinematic genre fusion.

August 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The lack of narrative momentum and emotional aloofness eventually become too frustrating to overcome.

August 10, 2018 | Full Review…

[T]he whole movie feels like two separate ones: One is mournful, introspective, and darkly comic, while the other follows a routine to nowhere special.
