Cat and Mouse
The Netherlands / 2014 / 90 min / Completed
Belle, a young girl is growing up amidst the ruins of long forgotten events. Unknowingly, cycling through the forlorn and romantic fields around her isolated community, she rediscovers her shameful family history that lies at the root of her existence. Her playful character and young innocent love for her boyfriend Max become stained by a nonverbal tension that envelops the small town. And threatens her sexual awakening. The death of her aunt, whom she lives with, unleashes memories which entangle her in complex, unspoken feelings. When her estranged mother returns there is no way back. Cat and Mouse is a surreal drama about unconditional love ruined by manipulation and lies.
