1 hours 36 minutes | Rated M (Offensive language & domestic abuse themes)
A teenage girl decides to replace her controlling father with his wealthy foreign friend during a weekend trip to the Adriatic Sea.
Keenly attuned to the characters’ emotional thermostats, Murina progresses through short, loaded, yet often controlled verbal exchanges (some threats are reduced to a whisper, and words wound in quick jabs) and telling glances. Reverse Shot
Showing how paradise can be hell, this audiovisual treat is spiritedly played by its leads and bristles with a brooding menace that can’t quite disguise the story’s essentially melodramatic nature. Empire Magazine
The gorgeously shot film, named after the eel (murina, a local delicacy) that the father and daughter bring up from the ocean bed, is a wriggly, sensuous delight. The Indian Express
There are some very persuasive performances, and lovely cinematography by Hélène Louvart. Guardian
