A breathtaking visual marvel, FANGA has the timeless feel of an ancient folk tale that is at once darkly imaginative and disturbingly fantastical. “Fanga” is the Icelandic word for prisoner — which echoes through this chilling Icelandic take on the classic fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast.” Belle is stuck in obligation to her dead mother, a willing prisoner to the need to care of her family. But when Belle’s father falls ill, she chooses to become prisoner to the flesh-eating Beast in exchange for a healing spell. Caught between two toxic relationships, this is the story of Belle fighting through the wrong kind of love in order to feel her way towards something new.
