Katalin Varga \ Peter Strickland (2009)
Dir: Peter Strickland / Romania, UK, Hungary / 82mins / Cert. 15
A startling breakthrough for new British talent Peter Strickland, Katalin Varga follows the journey of Katalin, a woman who crosses borders of landscape, sex and morality in her mater-of-fact quest for vengeance. With an earthy palette and cold eye on the Romanian countryside, this is a film with dirt under its fingernails, and a female character that will not be forgotten.
