The Strange Case of Jacky Caillou (2022)

Jacky is a young man who likes to wander around recording sounds to blend into his music. When his grandmother, a healer of great power, passes Jacky thinks that he will be able to go off and do what he wants. However when a young lady shows up with an odd rash he takes steps to help her.

This good mix of coming of age, fantasy and horror is a small low key gem. This is the sort of film that makes it clear why you need to look past the Hollywood blockbusters at the other films that are out there. To be honest the film may not be the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it is a damn satisfying film. Its rare that a Hollywood film left me feeling as satisfied as this.

The cast is first rate with everyone selling their roles.
