After her parents' divorce, 14-year-old Linda leaves Switzerland and moves back to post-siege Dubrovnik. One day, her new best friend Eta takes her to a secluded beach along the cliffs of the city where a sexually charged game leads to a fatal accident. The following morning Linda comes back alone and slowly begins to take the place of Eta to ghostly effect.

    "Cure is a deliberately ambiguous film, an inner journey in the mind of a teenager who’s trying to find herself again in a country that has become foreign to her, a country that attracts her but that seems to reject her. A captivating and toxic film. "
    Muriel Del Don, Cineuropa
  • Highest Rating
    "Cure - The Life of Another is a nuanced meditation on the lingering losses of war, the hidden wounds of exile and the fissile love-hate dynamics of teenage friendship, especially between girls."
    Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
