This is truly a peculiar but chillingly effective micro-narrative, following a bickering couple into the woods as they attempt a reconciliation while treating nature carelessly, and have to suffer the consequences when nature itself turns against them. There isn’t much else to it than that, but that’s what makes it so effective – long shots with eerie silences punctured by animalistic but unidentified howls, a sense that the woods and the many creatures within are closing in on them while they’re too busy arguing to take stock of their environmental destruction. It’s not for everybody, and surely casual moviegoers will be bored to tears, but serious horror fans will find plenty to sink their teeth into, and film buffs will dig the symbolism and pro-environment message.
