Gemma (Imogen Poots) and Tom (Jesse Eisenberg) move into a brand new house in an idealistic real estate development where everything is picture-perfect. But the promise of a dream home soon spirals into a bizarre nightmare when they find themselves trapped in a labyrinth of circular streets and never-ending rooflines.
An unassuming and cheeky oddity with a deliciously quirky production design, Vivarium is a strange and surreal thriller that plays like an episode of Black Mirror directed by David Lynch. Fans of challenging surrealist films like Vincenzo Natali’s Nothing or Juan Diego Solanas’s ambitious Upside Down ought to embrace Vivarium‘s metaphoric social parables, while others may struggle with this one’s avant-garde nature.
