Hatching

Tinja (Siiri Solalinna) is desperate to please her image-obsessed mother, whose popular blog 'Lovely Everyday Life' presents their family's idyllic existence as manicured suburban perfection. One day, after finding a wounded bird in the woods, Tinja brings its strange egg home, nestles it in her bed, and nurtures it until it hatches. What eventually emerges becomes her closest friend and a living nightmare, plunging Tinja into a twisted reality that her mother refuses to see.

Perching between beauty and revulsion, director Hanna Bergholm's meticulously crafted thiller signals the arrival of an impressive new talent.
