Survival, motherhood and movies all collide in a backyard pool.
A disturbing insight into the extremities a mother goes to prevent any parent’s worst nightmare. With a strong all female cast, Stella Kyriakopoulos captures fear, pride, pressure and the superb skill and performance of a very small child. With a climax commenting on the human desire to record and capture reality distracts from the reality of the situation with potentially catastrophic implications.
Locarno is ...
… simply wonderful!
