Evolution Cert. 15 Picture house at FACT

  • GenreDrama
  • CastRoxane Duran, Julie-Marie Parmentier, Max Brebant

Lucile Hadzihalilovic’s eerie mood piece echoes many of the themes and preoccupations of her previous film, 2004's Innocence, sharing its remote setting, child cast and unnerving imagery.

But here the director moves into darker, more supernatural territory with a story of small boys at an isolated seaside hospital, suffering from an unknown ailment and tended to by an enigmatic team of nurses whose motivations may be ominous.

A strange, near-wordless and nightmarish film, almost unclassifiable in terms of tone and genre, Evolution is utterly mesmeric, right up until the mysterious and grisly finale that is likely to be a talking point for many years to come.
