Hatching still

12-year-old Tinja struggles to succeed as a gymnast to please her demanding mother, obsessed with the image of a perfect family. One night, she discovers a strange egg in the woods and hides it in her room. What hatches will provide a terrible shock for everyone involved.

Growing up, with all its perils of puberty and living up to parents’ expectations, is both moving and terrifying like never before in this debut feature by director Hanna Bergholm. Hatching is one of those horror films that will be appreciated by both genre enthusiasts and art film audiences. Young debutant Siiri Solalinna is extremely convincing in the leading role, supported by incredible special effects by Gustav Hoegen.
