A woman in a desolate central European landscape sets off to seek out, and take her revenge on, her rapist of many years ago. So far, so indie cinema. The surprise is that a British writer-director, Peter Strickland, has so immersed himself in the concept and the landscape that he's created a festival hit, winner of the Silver Berlin Bear. Fine cinematography and a strong central performance by the previously unknown Hilda Peter serve him well. As for the widely-praised sound - ' other-worldly score, part choral, part electronic, by Steven Stapleton and Geoff Cox, and a genuinely enigmatic sound design....a powerful, unsettling film.' (Jonathan Romney, Independent)
