Synopsis:
Peter Strickland's startlingly original directorial debut centres around Katalin Varga, who, after being banished by her husband and her village, is left with no other choice than to set out on a quest to find the real father of her son, Orban. Taking Orban with her under another pretence, Katalin travels through the Carpathians where she decides to re-open a sinister chapter from her past and take revenge. The hunt leads her to a place, she prayed eleven years prior, she would never set foot in again...

Bleak/oblique - Katalin Varga review by PW

Spoiler Alert
11/11/2017

This elliptically told story was never boring and had moments of intense power. Perhaps the overall strategy of leaving the viewer to imagine some of what had happened before and what would happen after the given events was taken to an oblique extreme, but the playing of the main protagonists was admirable. The subtitles were sparely worded and convincing against the context of action. Some stunning scenic photography enhanced the narrative.
