You Won’t Be Alone – Chicago Reader

Bestinau got that-

You won’t be alone is an enchantingly beautiful film. The creepy story uses succinct dialogue, serene setting, and striking score to create a poetic take on life, death and the in-between, skillfully luring the audience into the eerie yet ethereal world. Set in a remote mountain village in 19th-century Macedonia, it follows a haggard girl who is turned into a witch by an old ghost. While the ghost (which reads like an art house Freddy Krueger) remains steadfast in his sinister ways, the witch embarks on a journey to understand what it means to be human. Her method is horrific, but her experiences are harrowing and heartwarming. As she moves from one lifetime to the next, a cast of actors fill the role, with Noomi Rapace giving a standout performance that is likely to stay with viewers long after they leave the theater. R, 108 minutes.
