Closing Gala: Murina (15)

Glasgow Film Festival

Young woman sitting alone on the beach while people play with inflatables behind her

The debut feature film from writer-director Antoneta Alamat Kusijanovic navigates the restricted life of a young woman.

Murina appears to lead a fairytale life on a gorgeous Croatian island. She swims, dives and wants for nothing but her father Ante (a repellent Leon Lucey) is a controlling bully of a man who seeks to keep her like a caged bird.

A visit from Ante’s millionaire friend Javier (Cliff Curtis) is the key to a lucrative development deal. There is history between Javier and Murina’s mother Nela (Danica Curcic). Simmering tensions slowly come to the boil as Murina’s defiance and growing allure put her on a collision course with a father desperate to maintain the status quo and secure his deal.
