The movie begins with a young woman being carried into a van and later in a solid white room the young woman, obviously deceased, is being undressed by a nude Johansson, who then put the clothes she is removing on herself. Later Johansson is seen driving around, picking up men, and luring them back to an abandoned location where they undress and walk into a weird puddle of liquid. The movie follows Johansson as she talks to these men, and ends up in the woods after trying to discover the things she is missing.
Things do not end well for Johansson's character.
This movie was a visual exception, dark and gritty when it needed to be, and bright when the setting was needed to prove the point of innocence that may or may not have existed. The woman is a callous being who appears to be just doing her job, which seems to be delivering men to be incorporated in a different existence. She cares nothing for the men, although she does seem to be enjoying their company and conversation. One scene is especially brutal involving a family, the ocean, and an abandoned infant. The end of the movie is a stunning masterpiece of beauty and brutality as Johansson's character is assaulted, and the brutality of the moment is stunning.
This movie seems to speak to the roles of men and women, as the female is the predator using sexual suggestion to lure men into her lair where they seem to go to their deaths without getting the sexual satisfaction they were hoping for. Later the woman is seen attempting to eat a piece of cake, which she promptly spits out, and she is seen attempting to have sex with a man, but promptly stops as she realizes something about her is not what it is supposed to be like. The movie could be about the frailty of humanity as the weak don't survive, and men are easily lured to their dooms with the promise of sex. An infant left alone will not know what to do to survive, and a father who sees his wife being washed out to see may only think of her survival, not the baby left on the beach. Humanity is often tempted by things that may lead us to our doom, a giant piece of chocolate cake, a quiet conversation leading to help and reward, and promises of casual sex. Broadening our world view may help us live better, or we might discover the monster living within.
