Lucile Hadzihalilovic – Évolution aka Evolution (2015)


The only residents of young Nicholas’s seaside town are women and boys. When he sees a dead body in the ocean one day, he begins to question his existence and surroundings. Why must he, and all the other boys, be hospitalised?

Nicolas is a boy living on a remote island set in the future, or another planet – or is it a dream? His village consists of white-painted houses located above the sea with a volcanic rock and black sand coastline, populated by young women and boys all of a similar age to Nicolas. Whilst swimming, Nicolas makes a discovery in the ocean, which is shrugged off my his mother, who, like all the women in the town has tied-back hair, is pale and wears a simple thin beige dress. Nicolas is curious, thinks that he is being lied to and starts to explore his environment, witnessing some unsettling scenes. He then finds himself taken to a hospital-like building where he along, with the others, undergoes a series of medical procedures by the women, dressed as nurses. He is befriended by one nurse, who becomes instrumental in the film’s denouement. The film is not easy to categorise; it is not only enigmatic but beautifully filmed with deeply poetic imagery. – IMDb Read More »

Lucile Hadzihalilovic – Good Boys Use Condoms (1998)

Image Hosted by


It’s true good boys do use condoms! I saw this requested and was intrigued so I decided to see if I could track it down on the mule. I wasn’t sure if it was meant to be comedy or educational, but it does show a good boy who uses not only one condom, but two, and gets a reward for being a good boy. A sex education message that would be sure to keep the class attentive!
