"Adoptee Ilja is a new addition to the household of Izabelé, Liudas, and their son Gailius, who suffers from epilepsy. Gradually, but inescapably, their family life begins to change. The abandoned child with the large and empty eyes – played impressively by Joris Baltrūnas – rocks the existence of the outwardly intact middle-class family, and reveals smouldering conflicts. In this adaptation of Laura Sintija Černiauskaitė’s best-selling novel, everything steers us towards the looming tragedy. Gailius is the first to notice that something is not right with the boy. “He goes out every night”, he tells his mother, and “he looks at us like a fox”. Director Giedrė Beinoriūtė says that her first feature-length film is about the attempt to heat stone. “Breathing into Marble” is both a complex character study and a tense, nightmarish psycho-thriller.
