Across the River
This film has no current screenings
Deep in the woodlands of Friuli, on the Italy-Slovenia border, a biologist stationed alone to perform animal census studies (played by an excellent, appropriately rugged-looking Marco Marchese) makes a frightening discovery. And, no, it doesn’t involve the wildlife… This meticulously crafted naturalist film with a supernatural kick is good old-fashioned storytelling at its finest. In fact, its impeccable sound design and music, atmospheric locations, and slowly building tension are used to such great effect that you’ll feel like you’re trapped there alongside the scientist: damp, isolated, unsettled, scared to death.
