The first feature from writer/director Caroline Strubbe, Lost Persons Area is another in the growing cadre of incredible looking film coming out of Belgium. Maybe there's something in the water because they're one country to watch for serious talent like one of my favorite cinematographers Nicolas Karakatsanis (who also did Linkeroever and Small Gods) who could seriously give the likes of Nuri Bilge Ceylan and crew a run for their money. Nicolas shot this film and reportedly one journalist said "he outdid himself on this one", but back to the story. I've just watched the unfinished trailer (sorry folks, can't share) and yes, it is stunning and poignant, the story a seeming search for meaning against the backdrop of metaphorical emptiness of electrical pylons. We're expecting a full trailer in a couple of days so check back!

Tessa, a nine-year-old girl, wandering the field with endless pylons, looking for bits and pieces to occupy her mind. Marcus, Tessa’s father, a man searching to find happiness for his little family in an unconventional way of living. Bettina, a woman amongst men, figuring out which role to play as a mother and a wife. And Szabolcs, a Hungarian engineer, looking for a better life and a family far away from home

Stills after the break.
