), based on the novel of the same name by Brian Catling, is set somewhere in Europe, mid-twentieth century. Albert (50) is employed to look after 10-year-old Mia. His most important task is to see to her ice dentures, which must be changed several times a day. They live alone in a large apartment: the shutters are always drawn, Mia never leaves and day follows day in an unchanging ritual. Every week, the telephone rings and a male voice questions Albert about the girl’s wellbeing. Every week Albert responds with the same answers until one day the voice tells Albert he’ll have to bring the girl to Paris. Devastated, Alberts world slowly unravels around him.

Produced by Jean des Forêts for French outfit Petit Film and by Andy Starke for British production house Anti-Worlds, Earwig is being co-produced by Belgium’s Frakas Productions. The feature has secured backing from the BFI, Film4, the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, Screen.brussels, Casa Kafka Pictures and the Angoa. The cinematography has been entrusted to Jonathan Ricquebourg (Lumières Award for Best Cinematography in 2017 for Last Days of Louis XIV [+leggi anche:
