'"I seem to have a bit of a problem with reality," says Lucile Hadžihalilović. Or perhaps the French film-maker is just committed to a reality of her own. Her new film, Evolution, set on a mysterious island, is itself an enigmatic outcrop, far off cinema's well-mapped charts. It depicts an uncanny world inhabited by young boys and their eerie mothers; curious medical procedures are carried out at the island's hospital, placing the boys in uncomfortably close proximity with starfish. Part horror story, part visual poem, it shows why Hadžihalilović is one of the few authentic visionaries in cinema today.'
