Review of 'The Girl and the Spider'

Review of 'The Girl and the Spider' ...

The Story of Ramon and Silvan Zurcher's remarkable storytelling combines the mesmerizing use of a fixed camera, characters walking in and out of frame, their friendships gradually revealed (or not), and their difficulties distorted in bizarre and horrifying exchanges. It's the roommate who's left behind behind in the drama's swirl of friends, relatives, and unwonted self-doubt.

The debut that surpassed the Zurcher twins as filmmakers of striking originality has expanded upon that 2013 film's visual grammar. Working again with Alexander Hakerl, they explore the different aspects of the familiar in a way that is at once fluid and transparent, both humorous and poignant. Philipp Moll's brilliant score has sparked conversations throughout.

Ramon Zurcher and Silvan Zurcher are the stars of this film.

The images that open the film reveal the psychological terrain to explore: First there's the clean geometry of an apartment floor plan, a printout of a PDF that will, yes, become a minor character in the story, and then there's the sight of a jackhammer tearing up a sidewalk. For Mara (Liliane Amuat), the ground beneath her is actually shattering.

The relationship between the two, obvious mothers, ex-lovers, or frenemies, takes a while to determine. Even though the film's dialogue and pointed glances offer intimations of context, we never quite get a definitive answer. When Lisa's terse voice that Mara is her roommate, and not making the move with her, it addresses some questions while opening up a second hand. And the way she requires Mara to "let go" reverberates well beyond

The action begins in the empty slate of the new apartment. Lisa's mother, Astrid (Ursina Lardi), ostensibly to assist. But her main concern is the sharply visible eye, which she turns suspicious and wounded, on her forehead. (Later, Mara, she will also have a fresh red scrape, her pain sticking to the surface, and Confurius' bright but hooded gaze, urging her to go.)

Lisa has inherited Astrid's departure from the social-nicety system, which she has polished with a youthful imperiousness. With her husband a no-show, she'll not hide her enjoyment of the low-key encounters between her and her moving coach Jurek (Andre M. Hennicke) as well. Astrid isn't letting her out on the floor. Mara (Flurin Giger), who is unlikely to be Casanova, can't keep

Markus (Ivan Georgiev), Mara's roommate, arrives with a couch whose yellow color is quickly noticed as Mara is clearly grappling by Lisa's departure, regardless of the nature of their relationship. And madness is a well-worn film trope for female roommates, which the Zurchers acknowledge, embrace, and spoof all at once. Kerstin (Dagna Litzenberger Vinet) and her edge-of-sanity roomie, Nora

The Zurchers give a fresh perspective on the relationship between humans and the wild world, specifically within the story's domestic trappings. Out of the floor-plan printout, which will undergo transformations at the hands of several protagonists, the story's nonhuman figures include a couple of dogs, a cat, and the title arachnid, who are well-known for their uncompromising pleasure, revealing the story's own unique charm. (In their first film, a moth played

The plot outline is concise, but within the context of which includes a party in the apartment that Lisa's departure, flirtations, seductions, and put-downs occur with an uncommon intensity. Mara, Lisa, and Astrid say bizarre and unsettling things, their cruelty and spite sometimes offhand, sometimes calculated. These characters possess a capacity for understanding, but not necessarily for compassion. Mara, Lisa, and Astrid,

Both Mara and Astrid keep Lisa by sticking her to the past for a fleeting moment, and familiar trajectories are disrupted by other people's choices. Unlike Mara, the writers of The Girl and the Spider have the capacity to craft and control their story. They have orchestrated a fine line of high-impact lyricism, bringing their tale of the mystery-infused quotidian to a stunning, open-ended conclusion.
