Creature, dir. Asif Kapadia, United Kingdom 2021, 87 min., 12A
Creature is an intense, visceral and disturbing film directed by Academy Award winner Asif Kapadia (Amy) in a ground-breaking, genre-busting collaboration with Lawrence Olivier Award winning choreographer Akram Khan.
Based on the 2021 English National Ballet stage production, the film unfolds the story of Creature, who has been unknowingly enlisted by a military brigade into a bold new experimental programme. When Creature meets and falls in love with Marie, a cleaner who shows him kindness and compassion, he sees a glimmer of hope. Together they dream of escape. But the remorseless Army is led by the arrogant, violent Major who becomes obsessed with Marie and offers her passage from the doomed planet. As Marie finds herself caught between the two men, Creature begins to lose his grasp on reality with tragic consequences.
