10-year-old Nicolas lives with his mother on a remote island, in a village inhabited solely by women and young boys. In a hospital overlooking the ocean, all the boys are subjected to a strange medical treatment. Only Nicolas questions what is happening around him. What he discovers is the beginning of a nightmare into which he is helplessly drawn.


This eerily seductive mind-bender is a dark, dreamlike descent into the depths of the unknown. Ten-year-old Nicolas (Max Brebant) lives in a remote seaside village populated only by boys his age and adult women. But when he makes a disturbing discovery beneath the ocean waves—a dead boy with a red starfish on his stomach—Nicolas begins to question everything about his existence. What are the half-remembered images he recalls, as if from another life? If the woman he lives with is not his mother, then who is she? And what awaits the boys when they are all suddenly confined to a hospital? The long-awaited new film from the acclaimed director of Innocence is awash in the haunting, otherworldly images of a nightmare.


Critic Quotes:

“A trippy visual feast…” – The Hollywood Reporter

A nightmare that looks like a dream.” – Little White Lies

“By bridging an innocent theme like childhood with a presence full of disturbing connotations, “Evolution: attains a remarkably enchanting balance with cinema’s tools. One that can never be seen, but only experienced in the purest sense of the word.” – The Playlist
