Somersault

 

Australia 2004, 107 minutes
Dir. Cate Shortland
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama / Youth, Girl-centric

 

Aroview: Visually impressive though underwritten account of a fragile Australian teenager who flees her home for the wider world after being caught in bed with her mother's boyfriend.

Relocating to a tatty ski resort town, Cornish makes various desultory connections with the locals, slowly navigating the discrepancies between love and sex. Shot with a tumbledown intimacy and subdued rawness, this eschews the abrasiveness of UNDER THE SKIN for a more soulful exploration of similar territory. Won't resonate with all, but all the same, a highly promising directorial debut for Shortland.
