Plot – Spoilers:
Irina is studying to be a textile professional, but her mind can’t reconcile with the capitalistic aspects of all the theory she often needs to sit through in class. Her negativity is further fueled by a recent breakup and so when she receives a job offer to work at a small textile company in Kyrsyä located in the middle of nowhere, she quietly hops on a bus.

At Kyrsyä she finds herself in a commune where the people talk like they live inside a folk tale and act like they’ve been away from sun and air for far too long. But the idyllic settings of the place softens their weirdness and their strong distrust of the big world is charming and agreeable to Irina’s melancholic phase. So even though she witnesses a few intimidating events, her light contempt for the people there fills her with the confidence that she’s a big girl who can handle herself…

Alllllllrighty then… This was an interesting movie, to say the least. It could have gone in about a million different directions but it chose the path of nonsense. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing… it’s just a weird thing. It’s the difference between a “Holy shit! That was a killer movie” and a “WTFDIJW” (what the fuck did I just watch) movie. And this one, I’ve really got to go with WTFDIJW. Imho, a much better ending would have been for Mongo to come out of his shed and hack everyone into little pieces with a variety of garden tools…. and then sat down to a nice candlelit supper of brain and intestines… but that’s just me.

Once again, I would like to thank the fine folks at EUM for all the work they do to keep me amused.

very good – Midsommar had similarities to this but nowhere near as good in capturing the strangeness of a cult/community
