MILAN – There seems to be nothing new No one will save you, a film directed and written by Brian Duffield, available to stream on Disney+, tells the classic story of an alien invasion of rural America. However, twenty minutes later we notice that the main character has not yet said a word. And it will be like this for (almost) the entire film: this is Brynn Adams, a young woman who lives isolated in the countryside on the outskirts of her town. She’s played by Kaitlyn Dever, who blossomed on the sitcom. Man in the house and then devote yourself between Revenge of the Losers, Incredible AND intoxicating. Disconnected from society, Brynn fills her loneliness with hope and her passions from the comfort of her childhood home. However, one night she is awakened by strange sounds and finds herself face to face with an alien creature.
What follows is a dynamic confrontation between Brynn and a series of aliens who threaten her future and force her to reckon with her past. Duffield does a great job with this. No one will save you a sci-fi thriller that loads it with tension with a protagonist who hardly ever speaks because she is now accustomed to living in the silence of her life and her thoughts, tormented by a figure from her childhood. A shadow that rotates throughout the film, similar to those cast by the alien silhouettes on the floor of Brynn’s house. An invasion arrives at her home, the only safe place that acts as a shield from the eyes and gossip of the town’s inhabitants: aliens arrive at the home of an alien in her own world.
She’s not your typical female heroine No one will save you, because she is completely self-absorbed and sometimes selfish, but more out of necessity. When the aliens visit, they encounter a character who would have met a bad end within minutes in another movie. However, she manages to find safety here also because she has always had to take care of herself. He already knew how to survive. Silence in this context makes more than sense and is a natural element of the cinematic design, which Duffield achieves thanks in part to the remarkable sound design. Alien creatures from No one will save you they move and speak through vibrations and guttural sounds that accompany a wide variety of physical forms.
And even if they make you turn your nose up a little due to the very stereotypical alien art design and slightly fake CGI, they play a lot on the horror and tension that runs throughout the film. For No one will save you nonconformist experience in the genre Home invasion, which may suffer from a limited budget but is greatly aided by Duffield’s creative flair and, above all, by Dever’s magical, expression-only silent interpretation. Small but big entertainment in the vast, dispersed catalogs of platforms about the life and silence of the alienation of a vague modernity.
