From the looks of it, the relationship between M. (Anna Heidegger) and
Schweitzer (Cris Kotzen) must have been a beautiful love story ...
"must have been", because these days things have turned for the
worse, and what's even worse than that is that M. seems to be caught in a
loop forced to relive the turning points of her relationship again and
again, with things going more awry with each repitition ...
note that above synopsis is more of an interpretation of Hades than
an actual summary as the film leaves all of its plotpoints very open, and
intentionally so - but that's not to say that Hades is a narrative
mess, quite the contrary, its approach that refuses to give any definite
answers really grips the audience and draws them in, and the guessowrk one
needs to do keeps one engaged. Now add to that a very elegant direction
that isn't only very fluent in speaking horror but also finds a voice of
its own, and a cast that really manage to get the story and emotional
undergrowth across without the use of dialogue, and you've got a pretty
brilliant little film!
