review by
Mike Haberfelner

Anna's (Laura Tremblay) is a prostitute who has made it out - much to the dismay of her pimp Marcus (Mark Nuttall) who's trying to track her down. But even without him, her past life seems to follow her everywhere, as it was just a culmination of years of abuse that got all bottled up with her and that make it hard to transition into a "normal" life - so when at her first office job she attacks and injures her boss with a stapler, she's promptly arrested and only gets parole because her mum Carol (Tracy Rowland) vouches for her. She has to undergo mandatory group therapy though, which drives her nuts. In fact, "normal" life drives her so mad that she tries to commit suicide. The only stress relief she knows is firing her gun at the gun range, and pretending she's shooting her abusers. Things come to a head when Marcus has caught up with Anna and pretty much forces her to come back to him ...


Drowning for sure is quite an unusual film as it totally defies any genre conventions, be it thriller, high drama or exploitation, instead approaches its material - and its protagonist, who's in almost every shot - in a cold, almost clinical way - which interestingly enough helps getting us into the mindset of Anna, who does her best to shrug off her reality, to pretend, so see herself from the outside. And Laura Tremblay's emotionless performance in the lead only mirrors that, as does the often very bleached out colour scheme the film uses. And the result is quite fascinating, a slowburn film that manages to be oddly compelling and surprise its audience, and that's sure to leave nobody unfazed.
