review by
Mike Haberfelner

Elliot (West Liang) and Greta (Amy Tsang) both find themselves stranded at a run-down desert motel, and since nobody else is really taking notice of them they strike a friendship. Of course, they both have a motive to being there, Elliot is on the way to his estranged wife to reconcile, Greta is on a quest to find her husband Patrick (Max Faugno). And here's where things get strange, as Greta's actually the splitting image of Elliot's wife, while Greta travels with an android that shares her husband's features. And she has actually picked that exact desert motel because it's near to a portal to "the other side", because Patrick has actually killed himself, and she figures herself partly responsible for his suicide. Now in principle, Elliot agrees to help Greta in passing over, but there's still a meeting with gatekeeper Amanda (Chandra Anderson) on the horizon, and she sure is a treacherous one ...

 

Now this sure is an unusual film if there ever was one, a blend of science fiction and metaphysical horror, but done in a very low-key way with hints of both surrealism and neo-noir. As a result, the film's not always easy to follow and deceives its audience more than once, but it's a bit like a puzzle that gets more fascinating the longer it goes on. And a stylish directorial effort and very solid cast sure help in making this a pretty unique cinematic trip.
