Cure – The Life of Another

Cure – The Life of Another

After her parents’ divorce, Linda moves with her Croatian doctor father from the coddled security of Switzerland to post-siege Dubrovnik in 1993. It’s not an easy shift, and Linda feels fortunate to have a friend in Eta. On a hot summer day, the two climb to the forests above the city. Eta goads Linda into telling her about nonexistent sexual experiences; Linda kisses her, leading Eta to taunt her friend for being a virgin. Uncertain of her feelings, Linda pushes Eta. From this moment, Linda imagines her friend’s ghost berating her, especially as Linda assumes more and more of Eta’s life.

(Jay Weissberg, Variety)
