Charlotte Le Bon‘s beguiling, mischievous feature directorial debut begins with the creepy image of a young woman’s lifeless body floating face-down in the middle of a glimmering lake at dawn. But Falcon Lake is more sweet coming-of-age story than horror film… albeit one with a decidedly ghoulish streak. Adapted from Bastien Vivès’s graphic novel, A Sister, the story follows two families sharing a summer cottage on a lake in Quebec. Thirteen-year-old Bastien’s family has come from Paris. Sixteen-year-old Chloé and her mother are Canadian. And the lake in question is purportedly haunted by a ghost. A story of intense puppy love, filled with the requisite awkward teenage insecurities and stumbling awakenings of desire, as well as razor-sharp observations and some unexpectedly chilling surprises, Falcon Lake is a poignant, astonishingly assured first feature.
