The new film from the director of Innocence is an eerily seductive mind-bender about a remote island community of young boys and adult women whose putty-like skin hints at something not quite human. The women treat the boys as if they are sick, but the real purpose is only revealed at the creepy island hospital, where a nurse takes an interest in a boy who is different from the others. Awash in the haunting, otherworldly images of a nightmare, the film features “gorgeous widescreen cinematography, including stunning underwater and nighttime footage.” (Variety) Filmed on the island of Lanzarote. Ranked one of best 25 films of 2016 by the prestigious British film journal Sight & Sound.
