Evolution Trailer

The first teaser trailer has debuted for French director Lucile Hadzihalilovic's new film Evolution, which premiered at TIFF to some very interesting reviews. One review says it's a "silly horror movie at heart" that seems to "confuse 'ideas' with 'prolonged silences'", hence the very mesmerizing and haunting footage in this trailer. In the film, Max Brebant stars as Nicholas, a boy living in a mysterious, isolated seaside clinic who uncovers the sinister purposes of his keepers. It seems to be a very peculiar film with lots of prolonged shots of things happening that are supposed to tell a twisted story. I'm really not sure what to make of this.

Here's the first official trailer for Lucile Hadzihalilovic's Evolution, direct from YouTube:

The only residents of young Nicholas's seaside town are women and boys. When he sees a dead body in the ocean one day, he begins to question his existence and surroundings. Why must he, and all the other boys, be hospitalised? Évolution is directed by French filmmaker Lucile Hadzihalilovic, of the 2004 film Innocence previously as well as a number of shorts. The screenplay was written by Alanté Kavaïté & Lucile Hadzihalilovic, in collaboration with Geoff Cox. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and also played at the London, Stockholm + Torino Film Festivals. Evolution opens in US theaters in April. Curious?

      What? Why? Where is the resemblance?
      • The sparse dialogue, disturbing images, a creepy beach scene and unnerving score for starters.
        • ErrorSapiens
          The only thing resembling is the music, which you do not mention. weird. just as much requiem for a dream in there.
          • Yep. Score = music.
