After Glass, M. Night Shyamalan is back with a chilling new feature film: Old. Meet the director, a past master in the art of the final twist.
Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village, Glass, and today Old, which will be released on July 21 … In a few films, M. Night Shyamalan has managed to impose his universe.
A director whose style is so instantly recognizable, it’s called having a touch, a touch. And although it’s almost unpronounceable, let’s call it the Shyamalan Touch.
This “touch” could not be more present in Old, a chilling fantasy thriller. Worn by Gael García Bernal, the film takes us to the tropics. The members of a family stop for a few hours on an isolated atoll.
They then observe with dismay that their aging is drastically accelerated and that their entire life will be reduced to this last day. They wanted to slow down on vacation, they had no doubt that the opposite would happen …
From the art of the twist to the strange that invades everyday life, including the decor as the central character of his intrigues, Shyamalan shares his method and his little secrets with us. Enter the world of the master of the twist!
