Earwig

  • 15

Somewhere in mid-20th century Europe, a fifty-year-old man is employed to care for ten-year-old Mia, a girl with teeth of ice. Mia never leaves their apartment, where the shutters are always closed and the telephone only rings regularly when the Master enquires after Mia’s well-being. That is until the day her caretaker is instructed to prepare the child to leave. Surrealist French filmmaker Lucile Hadzihalilovic makes her English language debut with a mesmerising fable of long-repressed secrets and awakening memories set in a mysterious and oneiric world.
