Der er to verdener i dette hus – en mors og en datters liv – og to kvinders liv. Idet de to verdener begynder at blande sig, opstår der forvirring. Hvad vil der ske, når de knytter et bånd til hinanden?
A student of Japanese horror master Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Yui Kiyohara has imbued her impressive first film—a graduation project!—with an eerie ambiguity that is as elusive as it is irresistible. A ghost story of sorts, where two storylines mysteriously overlap, echoing the polyphony of Bach’s music.
Kiyohara refuses to answer every question that this film raises, which I think is the point and isn't to the film's discredit. Our House, much like the characters that live within, has secrets that don't need to be explained. This was a beautiful piece, and I'm excited to see where Kiyohara goes from here.
The mention of 11th grade winner in the credits made me convinced this was made by a 17 year old - I won't research to disprove this. Destined to always be discussed in relation to its influences, but also its own playful and puzzling journey. Full discretion: I checked out for parts given the nature of festivals 2.5
One of those little, effective movies that you often catch at film festivals, just before they disappear and become almost impossible to track down, Our House is an engrossing drama that feels very much like it's one step away from being a supernatural horror movie. In fact, I'm still not entirely convinced that it isn't.
It settled up quite an atmosphere of horror and, mostly, drama, of an interconnected reality in the house. I really give it a shot to the story and the idea, but sometimes, it almost makes more questions that were senseless to answer. Maybe is because of the style and culture that I'm not used to it. But, for the benefit of the doubt, I can say that Yui is an interesting artist and I'll keep an eye out for her work!
A fotografia me conquistou.. conseguiu junto com um bom trabalho de edição de som criar uma ótima atmosfera de terror. O problema é que eu estive esperando o terror que não necessariamente chegou em momento algum.
I couldn't relate to any part of this film, I'm afraid. It left me bewildered & bored. I saw no common touch points between the two occupants of the house & the denoument was painfully clumsy. Very high production quality for a graduate film, but this was either Japanese culture & sub-text completely passing me by, or a promising film maker's first work, but still one that should stay in the cupboard.
