Daughters
13 June 2015 | by timlin-4See all my reviews

While searching for her missing daughter an older middle-class woman meets a strange female drifter her daughter's age, and they spend some days together. The mother is uptight, the young woman is rebellious...hilarity would ensue, but this is a film of the European style: realistic, slow, depressing, and profound/boring depending on how you look at it. Even some nudist displays by Morgeneyer are severe, with her having the lean look of an animal. The film-making and acting are of good quality, but this is hard film to engage with. At least it is generous enough to have some kind of resolution, but by that point it's hard to care.
