Creepy and different
on 29 June 2014
I loved the claustrophobia and paranoia in this film!
The premise is very simple: three soldiers are tasked with guarding an isolated outpost in anticipation of, what seems to be a World War. Amidst the loneliness of their surroundings, the endless wait for instructions and the mind-numbingly mundane daily tasks they have to perform, all three struggle to keep their sanity. Not all succeed.
There are steampunk elements in the timeline and the various contraptions around the outpost and the snowy location adds to the creepiness of the film. Looking around, one can easily imagine feeling like the only person left in the world.
The best part of the film, though, is the excellent performances by the actors. The descent into madness is clear and believable.
This is a wonderfully strange film and I recommend it to anyone in the mood for something different!
