The Forest of Lost Souls

Swiss Première

Ricardo, a middle-aged man, and Carolina, a very young woman, meet in a remote and mysterious place where the hopeless come to commit suicide: the forest of lost souls... Telling more about this first feature film would be detrimental as it chooses not to stick to a definite genre, playing skillfully with unpredictability, changing dramatically mood even at the risk of losing some of its audience. From its captivating opening to its inevitable ending, "The Forest of Lost Souls" impresses with mastery and marks the emergence of a filmmaker worth keeping an eye on.
