Description

The Noonday Witch is the story of mother Eliška and her eight year old daughter, Anetka. Together, they move into a remote house to begin their new life with the ‘father away on business’, as the mother claims. However, when the daughter discovers the truth and realizes her own mother lied to her all along, their relationship begins to wither. Suddenly, the mythical Noonday Witch begins to materialize. But is the danger real or is it all in the mother’s head?

"The film's lyrical construction and intense central performance from Geislerová, well matched by newcomer Lipowská, do justice to the enduring power of the story" - Eye for Film

"Both mythic and modern, and beautifully shot too, The Noonday Witch eclipses expectations." - Projected Figures
