Watched this last night, it was amazing and intense
Cracks is a film about a group of school girls in a boarding school who become close and admire the new teacher Miss G (Eva Green). Miss G begins to become obsessed and affectionate towards a new student, Fiamma (Maria Valverde), who wants nothing to do with her. Her constant rejection towards Miss G’s advances causes Miss G to become cold towards the other girls, and this does not go unnoticed by their jealous classmate Di (Juno Temple).
Eva Green, as always, is phenomenal. The French actress plays the deeply emotionally broken Miss G who becomes obsessed with Fiamma. Throughout the movie it becomes hard to distinguish between whether she is in fact in love with Fiamma or just obsessed with the idea of not being able to have her. Over and over Fiamma rejects Miss G’s admiration and homage, knowing that something is very wrong with her.
Di, played by Juno Temple, is the leader of the group of school girls. She has a bad attitude and has no problem with wanting to eliminate competition. When she notices just how much Miss G wants Fiamma, Di turns the school girls against her. They even kicked Fiamma out of the school, walking her outside of the gates of the school and giving her a pillow case filled with coins, a short cake, and an amateur map drawn by one of the girls to make her run away.
The boarding school was a mansion filled with no-nonsense old women and young, ambitious girls who want to go home but are stuck there. The young group of girls were all sort of outcasts, going as young as nine years old. Together, they try to make the most of their time together and are as close as sisters, excluding Fiamma. But, once Fiamma and Di finally become friends and she is finally welcomed into the group, Miss G’s affection towards Fiamma goes too far, leaving Miss G heartbroken and angry.
Cracks is now honestly one of my favorite movies. The scenery in the movie was perfect with mossy trees and the large mansion that served for the school. Eva Green played her role perfectly, seeing as she’s always had a knack of playing deeply broken characters well (ex. The Dreamers and Franklyn). Maria Valverde, with her lovely round face and thick Spanish accent, made her character simple and likable, and seemingly innocent and undeserving of Miss G’s affection.
What scared me the most was that in the movie Miss G really, truly seemed to love Fiamma. Di truly seemed to hate Fiamma. Fiamma truly seemed to be completely confused throughout the movie of why all of this is happening to her. I very much recommend this movie; it will scare you and entice you. The quiet dialogue and their shy, downcast eyes and innocent youth will endear you to no end. Miss G’s cigarette-smoking elegance and defiance of normal school structure will seduce you, just as it had the school girls.
