Vinyan is another dark film about loss by Fabrice Du Welz and he does a great job of introducing the horror aspect of the film without any obvious big change of pace.
Set in the jungles of Thailand, a woman and her husband search for their missing son. Just given the setting we see them go through some pretty extreme emotional changes as well as them suffering physically from the effects of being in the jungle.
The strangest thing about this movie is that hope itself seems to be force of evil. It’s a feeling that consumes the mother and after a certain point, it seems like she just wont live if she doesn’t find her son. The insanity really creeps in on this one.
For those of you who’ve seen this and thought it was boring, believe me I get you, it’s definitely a slow burn. I do recommend giving this one a shot, very talented director.
Also, there’s a scene where the jungle kids are painting Emmanuelle Beart’s body with mud. Sorry, I hope I’m not spoiling anything but this is too funny. Anyways, one of the kids is straight up mud painting her titties with the biggest grin on his face. It’s hilarious, highly suggest finding that specific kid and rewinding the scene multiple times.
