Phantom Love

A bewitching dark fairy tale about a woman struggling to escape her overbearing family.

Drama 2007 87 mins Not rated

Director: Nina Menkes



A young woman struggles to escape her demanding family in this unsettling examination of trauma, healing and self-discovery, set in downtown Los Angeles. Soaked in psychoanalytical symbols and arresting imagery (drifting jellyfish, a levitating woman) this modern-day fairy tale is a bold experiment in female subjectivity, as Menkes attempts to make visible – and cinematic – the inner psychic transformation of her enigmatic heroine.
