Movie Info & Cast


Earwig tells the story of a young girl Mia (Romane Hemelaers), whose teeth are made of ice. Mia is forbidden from leaving the apartment she shares with her guardian Albert (Paul Hilton), where the shutters are always closed, restricting her from any contact with the outside world. The telephone rings regularly from a man known only as the Master, who enquires after Mia's wellbeing and the wellbeing of her teeth, which melt daily. On one such occasion, Albert is unexpectedly instructed that he must prepare the child to leave.

Earwig, the director’s first English-language film, lacks the macabre logic of Evolution, or the precision of Innocence; the audience is left fumbling for meaning in the gloom.

This is at the very least a beautifully designed failure, marrying crepuscular photography with faultless art direction, and blessed by a gorgeous, otherworldly score by Augustin Viard, a specialist in the ondes Martenot. It looks and sounds so darkly inviting – but sends you home unsated.
