Martha, a hesitant, fearful young woman escapes a rural commune and flees to her sister Lucy's luxurious home. But Martha's erratic presence strains Lucy's relationship with her uptight English husband. Beautifully composed images blur the boundaries between past and present, memories and dreams as in neatly interwoven flashback we learn just what Martha has been through. A sense of unease hangs in the air and the creeping tension builds to the pitch of nail-biting psychological thriller. Newcomer Olsen thrills with an astonishing performance as the damaged Martha in an unusual film that sidesteps cliché and asks pertinent questions that challenge Lucy's comfortable materialistic assumptions about life.
