The Witch Who Came from the Sea

Molly is haunted by childhood memories. She had been raped by her father.

Now a woman, she thrives on the imaginary. Television has such great influence on her that she slowly develops an obsession for the heartthrobs who are featured on the small screen. Mentally ill, she soon ends up thinking that she must make these stars suffer.





Molly doesn’t come from the see and is anything but a witch. "Crazy incoherent woman" would have been a better title but the film would have been shelved.

At the start of the movie, Molly admires or imagines men working out on the beach. The film’s credibility takes a hard blow. After all, nothing indicates that Molly is dreaming and we are forced to deduce that we’re watching “that kind of film”.

On frequent occasions during the film, I asked myself where I was being led and what feelings the film tried to provoke. Then, I started questioning Molly’s mental stability. Basically, the truth is that this woman is much too troubled for such a simple scenario.

Still, the film has its qualities. If you’re nostalgic about the seventies, be reassured that you won’t find a more typical film. The film’s first ten minute are a bit confusing but a certain police investigation will set things straight by injecting a required dose of realism.

The Witch Who Came from the Sea has a certain style but style can only do so much. An instable and confused main character, artificial blood as thick as water and a bad tendency to portrait sexuality as ugly are all to blame.
