Voice from the Stone starts with two emotional peaks and immediately switches to a deliberate tempo. Directed by Eric D. Howell creates a special atmosphere of visual awkwardness with a stunning setting, covered with a cover, the Tuscan castle, which itself is the key character of the film.

Emilia Clark - Verena, a rehabilitation nurse who specializes in helping injured children. She feels confident when she comes to the gothic house of the sculptor Klaus (Marton Chokash) and his son Jacob (Edward Dring). More than 7 months have passed since the death of his mother (Katerina Murino), and also since the youngest Jakob has last spoken a word. Verena expects to succeed where other nurses have failed.

Tuscany of the 50's is beautiful. And, perhaps, it is she who gives us a dreary and minimal natural light, mysterious elements of the ancient castle and surrounding forest and stone quarries. Also, it allows you to measure the tempo of the story, for example, transforming the characters of Verena and Klaus. But this happens too abruptly, as if pages in the script were skipped.

Voice from the Stone makes us wait for something. There is nothing wrong with slowly building up tension or emotionally-driven history in a Gothic novel. But the viewer needs something to happen to keep his attention. Or, at least, the characters should stand out so much as to evoke empathy and interest in their destiny. Clark does everything possible to evoke sympathy for her character, but that's not enough. Chokash makes more impression, but this is most likely due to the fact that his character always looks ready to scold someone.

Voice from the Stone tries to correct in the third act, where he translates the elements of horror into overdrive. But this sudden explosion of ill-will is in conflict with the rest of the film, and that's not enough to make us forget what happened before.

Visually, the picture can be liked by fans of Edgar Alan Poe's stories and such films as "Others", "Crimson Peak". The performance of history does not stand on one level, but the atmosphere and mood, of course there is. Oversized sculptures, life-sized portraits and even a piano, allow you to create more textures than any cheap jumps.

Gothic, romantic, supernatural thrillers with tension are quite difficult to take off, but even the proximity allows you to enjoy the cinematic viewing.
