quietearth [Celluloid 12.26.11] Belgium drama



Caroline Strubbe's directorial debut Lost Persons Area, premiered at Cannes in 2009, won best screenplay, and made fans of all of us here at Quiet Earth (review) with its stunning cinematography and its "psychic dead zone". Now word comes from producer Tomas Leyers that the obsessive Tessa is back with Szabolics for a sequel. Using a few scenes from the ending of it's predecessor, Deep in A Dream of You picks up where LPA left off. There's no word on a release date, but we're betting it will be at Cannes.

Deep in a Dream of You is a psychological drama. It depicts the relationship between a nine-year-old girl Tess with obsessive behavior and a forty-year-old engineer Szabolcs, together on the run. On their journey they mourn the death of their beloved ones, surviving their day-to-day worries in a small cottage
near the sea. This time of grief spent together makes them soul mates and interdependent for life, but when out for a swim in a public pool they get caught by the police. Tess and Szabolcs get torn apart. Scabolcs is deported to Hungary and stays under the supervision of the court on suspicion of abduction. Tess is placed into an orphanage. Now ten years later, Tess came looking for Szabolcs in Budapest. He finally understands how badly this girl and him have become dependent upon each other. So he visits her one more time and together they revive the horrendous night Tess’ parents took their life. Purged from their past, Szabolcs and Tess go back to the place where it all ended, the swimming pool, to finally pick up the thread of their story and go forward in life.
