An at times subtle noir David Lynch inspired film for young/teenagers
11 May 2014 | by alan-leeshawSee all my reviews

Having seen the movie Helen Alone and having given it such a high rating I would like to include the fact that this is a first film by a brand new Danish/US Director Henrik Poulsen which for me only adds to the quality and style of it's achievement.

The movie is a story that recounts 24 hours of a young girls life with all the trials and tribulations that it may bring, set in a very much now Texas town with youngsters of an all American Young/teenage background and where the lines of real life and fantasy are constantly blurred.

Having created what I consider to be a David Lynch inspired movie for teenagers, in doing so the Directors somewhat dark Danish noir subtleties are there to be explored. The leading actress playing Helen comes across with just the right amount of naivety and strangeness to carry the movie through to it's dreamlike conclusion. This is a movie of subtlety and innuendo that cries out for understanding just like Helen herself.
