We need to talk about Kevin (2011) - Cannes 2011

A mother tries to come to terms with her murderous teenage son.

First film I've seen in Cannes. It was haunting, dark and shot in the style I very much like: Quiet pictures, that left Tilda Swinton a lot of room to work.

The story was very concise and through flashbacks more and more stuff gets revealed. Great camerawork and the absence of dialogue is masterful. Very well cast, although John C. Reilly seemed just a tiny bit too "workman"style to be married to this kind of woman, but maybe I'm missing something here.

Fantastic shot with the eye cleaning and the long view onto the balcony window.
