BEAUTIFUL. A visual feast.

A mesmerizing sci-fi arthouse stunner.

— April Wolfe, LA Weekly

EXQUISITE. SUPERB. A trippy visual feast.

— Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

Elliptical and mysterious. Like a cross between a Jacques Cousteau underwater documentary and one of David Cronenberg’s cerebral body horror films. Gorgeously shot. Intriguing and provocative viewing.

— Geoffrey Macnab, Independent

Stunning doesn't even begin to describe it. A nightmarish lullaby.

— Nikola Grozdanovic, The Playlist

This eerily seductive mind-bender is a dark, dreamlike descent into the depths of the unknown. Ten-year-old Nicolas (Max Brebant) lives in a remote seaside village populated only by boys his age and adult women. But when he makes a disturbing discovery beneath the ocean waves—a dead boy with a red starfish on his stomach—Nicolas begins to question everything about his existence. What are the half-remembered images he recalls, as if from another life? If the woman he lives with is not his mother, then who is she? And what awaits the boys when they are all suddenly confined to a hospital? The long-awaited new film from the acclaimed director of Innocence is awash in the haunting, otherworldly images of a nightmare.
