Daniel

Claire van Beek - New Zealand
2019 — Fiction — English subtitles — c_vanbeek@hotmail.com

Daniel is a melodrama in the most complementary and potent representation of that particular genre. A young nun resides in a convent far out in the countryside. A farmer carved out of rock is the convent’s neighbour and the owner of a particularly fascinating lizard. Lust, virginity, belief and doubt all collide in this precise tale of the perils of repression and brilliantly portrays tribulations and trials of entering the confines of celibacy with your eyes wide
