Fissures

A sound recordist (Emilie Dequenne of Rosetta) investigates the murder of her mother, a clairvoyant in a farming community, and discovers she can record the past as well as the present. Using string to chart the paths taken by old sounds, she constructs a kind of spiderweb in the house where her mother died—so it may not be coincidental that her name is Charlotte. It's a striking poetic conceit, developed with some flair by first-time writer-director Alanté Kavaité, though eventually it engulfs the mystery story, making the latter seem almost like an afterthought. The French title translates as “Listen to Time.” In French with subtitles. 87 min.
