In the shadow of the Swiss Alps, Rico tends to his vineyard while wife Anna oversees a seemingly happy household that includes two daughters, younger Roberta and the sexually blooming Lili (Sarah Horváth in an unforgettable performance). Rico can’t help but notice the changes that have come over his daughter and, as a defense against forbidden thoughts, he begins to distance himself from her. Lili is initially puzzled, but then begins to react, with fateful consequences for all…

Director Katalin Gödrös’ disturbing semi-gothic chamber piece uses Lili’s burgeoning sexuality to unleash a tale of temptation, deceit, and power, as the inevitable “return of the repressed” rears its head. Horvath is the revelation here—her Lili, engaged in increasingly cruel games that eventually have her co-opting her father into becoming an accomplice, takes her place alongside other screen ingénues who so memorably begin to realize the power they really have (Lolita, anyone?).
