A corpse of a young girl being found in a small town usually signals the start of a great mystery, like in »Twin Peaks«. But in director Jaffe Zinn’s debut feature the mystery never takes off. The circumstances of the girl’s death are revealed fairly soon, leaving time and space for Zinn to work on other things. Instead of the everyday murder mystery, Zinn foremost depicts the milieu—Buhl, a small town in Idaho and also an early title for the film.

With a cast of local actors, and with sensibility and knowledge of the surroundings, Zinn has produced an astonishing documentary-like film of a small town. Perhaps Zinn is able to shoulder Gus Van Sant’s cape as the foremost chronicler of Idaho life?
