In a remote Alpine village, everything is done quietly in order to prevent avalanches. Passions and emotions are equally repressed, but that doesn’t prevent a spot of incestuous behaviour. Lurid two-strip technicolor, crackly sound and intertitles create the feel of an early German ‘mountain’ talkie. “Twin Peaks as directed by Erich von Stroheim.” Houston film festival
