Couple in a Hole :- Watch Couple in a Hole on YoutubeonFire, Sometimes an even greater mystery than why someone chose to create a particular movie is why someone else chose to fund it. Both questions exert a greater fascination than anything onscreen by the end of “Couple in a Hole,” Belgian writer-helmer Tom Geens’ second feature. This initially intriguing drama centers around the odd conceit of two grieving Scottish parents who find themselves living in a French forest crawlspace near where their only child died. Bizarre yet literal-minded pic gradually goes out on a limb too far as the scenario moves from leisurely and enigmatic to exasperating and random. Commercial prospects for this befuddling, eventually ridiculous endeavor look remote. It takes some time to figure out just what John (Paul Higgins) and Karen (Kate Dickie) are doing squatting beneath a dead tree in the mountains of Midi-Pyrenees. We eventually suss that they were living abroad when a fire destroyed their home and took the life of their young son. Still in a traumatized state months later, Karen can’t bear to leave the area, though it would seem there are easier ways to do just that than camping rough, foraging and trapping wild animals for food (the couple apparently don’t lack funds). The two scrupulously avoid all other human contact; Karen has even managed to develop agoraphobia without benefit of an actual house to enclose herself in. But when she’s bitten by a poisonous spider, John is forced to visit the nearest village, where passer-by Andre (Jerome Kircher) helps him get the needed medicine.
