“Anna arrives alone at the Italian holiday home of an extended bourgeois family. She‘s the old school friend of matriarch Verena, but is soon distracted from ‘the olds‘ and drawn to the vitality and energetic escapades of the teenagers in the group, in particular to cocky Oakley.” (Michael Hayden) “Under-the-radar discovery of the year. A terse, psychologically astute piece with echoes of Michael Haneke’s chilly rigour.” (Jonathan Romney)
