What an eerie take on the timeless J.M. Barrie classic we have in the German mind-messer "We Are the Tide". Never has Neverland been represented more seductively, nor more ominously, then it is here.
Writer Nadine Gottmann's tale of a group of children seemingly taken away by the sea never to be seen again is a supernatural mystery chock full of sadness, symbolism and self-awakening. Director Sebastian Hilger, Cinematographer Simon Vu, Leonard Petersen's moody music and the wizardry of a visual effects team led by Peter Lames combine to create a film as mesmerizing to behold as it is nearly impossible to explain.
In the end, it appears reasonable to surmise that "We Are the Tide" presents to us the age old question: If you could live forever would you do it?
