Vinyan (2008) Review:

Vinyan is at the very limit between horror and drama and to be honest, there is an almost total absence of horror in most of the movie, it only picks up in the last 15 min. I would personally not have characterized it as horror, but because it is usually listed as such, I decided to review it anyway.

Vinyan is an interesting docu-drama that follows the path of a couple of totally desperate parents in the search for their missing child. The acting of both actors is really convincing. The distress of the mother, played by Emmanuelle Beart, is especially communicative and I was really hoping for them to actually find their boy.

The fact that their quest is based on a 30×30 pixel image is really weird, and you wonder all along with the movie whether they actually saw the boy or not, whether they are crazy or not, and whether you would have done the same thing. The movie is really made in a way that will constantly get your feelings up and down, sometimes letting you think that the boy is really alive, and sometimes giving you hints that they are just crazy!


The movie is not really scary in the sense that we are used to, but instead set in a very creepy atmosphere, and all along you can feel the insecure position and incertitude of the parents. Not the movie of the year, but a troubling drama!
