KVĖPAVIMAS Į MARMURĄ

BREATHING INTO MARBLE

Giedrė Beinoriūtė
Lithuania, Latvia, Croatia, 2018, 97 Min

It could all be so perfect: Izabelė and Liudas lead an isolated existence together with son Gailius in the countryside. Izabelė yearns for another child and thinks she has found a potential adopted brother for Gailius in the withdrawn Ilja. However, the youngster has a dark side and it is not long before the cracks in the supposed family idyll come to the surface.

Just a Moment

Izabelė is looking for an adoptive brother for her son who suffers from epilepsy. When she meets six-year-old Ilja in a children's home, she thinks she has found the missing family member. Her husband Liudas and Gailius, on the other hand, don't seem to be very enthusiastic: Ilja is scary to them, the little boy hardly speaks, behaves unpredictably, and is sometimes almost evil. Izabelė still wants to love him. Soon the family idyll crumbles – Liudas goes his own way, Gailius feels replaceable and Iljas detachment reflects Izabelės loneliness.

An overflowing old zinc tub, a v-neckline, the view through coloured glass windows – the sensitive camera makes the characters’ fears and desires tangible through details and unusual perspectives. Giedrė Beinoriūtė and her remarkably good ensemble succeeded in delivering an exciting film which is based on the eponymous novel by Laura Sintija Černiauskaitės and where unspoken questions linger for some time to come.
