“All it takes is a girl, a guy and a touch of phantasmagoria to make for an intriguing contemporary romance in The Park.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“…it all starts getting seriously freaky, moving into the realm of low-key Apichatpong Weerasethakul-style quotidian surrealism” - The Guardian

A park in summer. A first date between two teens. A blossoming love... until night falls. Summertime. Two teens are on their first date. The day is bright and full of promise. Nervous at first, the two gradually lose their shyness and a relationship blossoms. Then comes the first kiss and with it, extravagant promises. But when evening sets in, it’s time to part. At that point the film, whose first part is decidedly Rohmerian, becomes a type of negative mirror image as normalcy morphs into strangeness. It’s the start of a dark, nerve-wracking night that, for the young girl, is marked by betrayal and disappointment in love.
