One of the best

Like the title says, this is one of the best post apocalyptic movies I have seen. It was so realistically portrayed. I felt the emotions, and felt like I was living through it with the two sisters. There was such an amazing connection between the lead actresses, and their dynamic relationship through the movie was incredibly authentic and fascinating. I would agree with some of the negative reviews that some of the choices the sisters made during the movie probably weren't the best, but I think that gives the movie some of its reality. The end, well, this is where it goes a bit wrong for me. The logic explained in the movie is a bit off putting, and I do see it as a waste. I don't want to spoil what happens so that is all I will say about it.

All in all, still an 8 out of 10 for me, and I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a good story about the human will through adversity.

One of the dumbest survival films I've ever seen

I've seen my fair share of dumb apocalypse scenario films, ranging from the far-fetched to the completely implausible, but 'Into the Forest' takes the biscuit. This film is just ludicrous, dreadfully written and featuring characters without a brain cell between them. Anybody with an ounce of common sense would never do what the characters in this film do to survive, in fact they would often do the complete opposite.

Why would anybody choose to sleep outside in the rain and freezing cold when they could just sleep inside? Why would anybody in their situation burn their only shelter, and their own home to the ground, and then live inside a tree? And why would anybody desperate to survive waste their valuable time and energy doing bizarre and pointless exercise routines? 'Into the Forest' is one of the dumbest survival films I've ever seen.

A Tale Of Love And The Will To Survive...

I might be sticking my neck out and going against the stream; but this grabbed me, held me, and passed before I was ready. I'd checked out the IMDB reviews before watching this on BBC iPlayer, and almost didn't watch. I'm glad I took the gamble, this was and IS a fantastic story on so many levels. I'm watching it again as soon as I've written this.

The performances are true, I totally sympathised with the characters. There's an easy, laconic unraveling of the story. We're definitely made to think. A lot of the clues about the disintegration of society are subtle, every day events. I found it rather pleasing that the Writers/Director (Jean Hegland, Patricia Rozema) give us the credit of being able to think for ourselves without making things too obvious. The house itself becomes a metaphor for society, so we can track it's metamorphosis, degradation and death knowing this is happening to everyone, everywhere.

TRYING TO GIVE A BROAD PICTURE WITHOUT SPOILERS (cover your eyes);

Nell (Ellen Page) is little sister, cosseted and nurtured by Dad (Kallum Keith Rennie) and much bigger sister Eva (Evan Rachel Wood). She is destined to live a comfortable life, apart from the gap year travelling the world or in The Peace Corp (I made that last bit up, she doesn't, but you get the picture). They live in a gorgeous, all mod cons and tech house in the forest three days walk from town. Not a problem with a 4x4 and plenty of petrol, a big deal without them. A minor setback becomes an all encompassing disaster; a small power cut drags out becoming a national (and possibly global) emergency, slowly eroding a rural society and its access to all of the modern comforts that were taken for granted like full petrol pumps, the internet and bulging supermarket shelves. There's an unfortunate accident that leaves both sisters in limbo not really knowing what to do or how to get by. Starvation is a real threat, the girls are totally isolated and just floundering. However Nell starts to rise to the challenge forced by hunger to dig deep and tap into that survival instinct. The one inherited from our ancestors; thousands of generations of hunter gatherer survivors. Slowly the girls learn how to use the forest and realise they're surrounded by an abundance of food and everything they could need, Starvation needn't be an option anymore. The self sufficiency continues, the girls actually start to thrive, although totally isolated, they are almost content. But, as always, it's not to last, dastardly 'modern man' almost destroys the idyll. Although his interference is brief he inadvertently begins the new chapter for humanity, setting in motion events that allow the girls to cut their ties with the past and all of its modern ills, and embrace the new world with a sense of purpose...

This is a film for thinkers, not a jack hammering compilation of steam punk violence or fake morality where 'the good guys' always win and the bad guys always die in regret. If you need to be told what to think and want instant gratification, then you might not enjoy Into The Forrest at all. If you have an inquiring mind and like independent non Hollywood style films, then I think you'll like this, a lot. I can't be that wrong, can I?
