Quote:
"[In Into the Forest, Patricia] Rozema brings the Gothic fantastic sensibility of her early New Queer Cinema successes, I've Heard the Mermaids Singing (1987) and When Night Is Falling (1995), into dystopia, creating a telling parable, a science fiction in which technology and modern scientific knowledge both fail, and older ways of knowing and being come to the fore."
