Stars for the cinematography, the acting from the leads, and the opening sequence; still, feels a little too derivative to be a standout in the tradition it's working in. Watching it makes me better understand the negative reaction to a film like *Kill List*. Of the two films though, I find *Kill List* much more unsettling, much bleaker, and more often able to overcome its references.
Van Hees presents us a moving portrait of a young woman and the darkest mysteries that surround her. Little chilling but well-made, it feels like more drma than horror when watching it for the first time. The ending is quite interesting that it leaves you watching it again while Kuppens gives a fabulous performance as Marie and its unforgettable cinematography takes your breath away. (Also, there's nudity a plenty.)
