One woman’s efforts to rescue her lover from a brutal cult, set to take her on a journey into the heart of darkness in Florian Gallenberger’s nerve-jangling thriller
Corruption and brutality run amok as the film once called Colonia as young lovers get caught up Chile’s 1973 Coup but facing even worse oppressive force underneath the infamous Colonia Dignidad.
Set amidst the Chilean coup of 1973, The Colony begins by depicting the masses who are out on the street, protesting against General Pinochet. Amongst them are Daniel (Daniel Brühl) and Lena (Emma Watson), a young couple who, like many others, get arrested by Pinochet’s secret police for producing propaganda against the regime.
Following his arrest, Daniel finds himself trapped in a secret interrogation camp located beneath the infamous Colonia Dignidad; a German sect under the leadership of the notorious, charismatic and unflinching Paul Schäfer (Michael Nyqvist). Presenting itself as a charitable mission, the Colonia is in fact a place of brutality and terror that nobody has ever escaped from. Desperate to rescue her boyfriend, Lena infiltrates the cult and witnesses the true darkness of Schäfer’s regime before she attempts a dramatic escape that puts both their lives on the line.
After Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson probably been the next busiest in regards to our lead Harry Potter characters. She’s delivered solid performances never really one that stands out, however that may change as those who have seen this say she is the shinning light of the film. Certainly looking her most intense dramatic role to date and she has taken the more independent film route which seems to be working in her favour. The Colony places a microscope over one of history’s lesser known atrocities and also gives fans the chance to see an incendiary Watson as she’s never been seen before.
The Colony is set for a 1st July UK cinema, On demand release. The film also stars Julian Ovenden, Richenda Carey.
