Instinct

Netherlands  ·  2019  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  98'  ·  o.v. Dutch

In spite of her expertise and experience, a seasoned psychologist is completely infatuated with the sex offender she is treating in a penal institution.


This bold first feature film explores the corners of desire, its strengths, its ambiguity. The performance of van Houten (Game of Thrones) as the psychiatrist of a serial rapist, is hypnotic, bewitching the viewer. Director and actress question domination in a very profound manner; the desire and refusal, almost concurrently, to dominate and be dominated. This raw exploration of human nature is enhanced by a very sharp almost clinical mise en scène by Reijn.

Mathilde Henrot
This film features scenes that could shock the sensitivity of some viewers. Legal age in Switzerland 16.
