Little Joe

Jessica Hausner
Little Joe is a film about doubting reality and identity: a mother is afraid of losing her son, but loses herself instead.
A plant created by genetic engineering appears to produce curious changes in people or animals who come into contact with it. Those affected seem alien, as if their personalities have been altered– especially to their nearest and dearest. Or is that just a figment of the imagination? The interplay between various truths is examined, and ultimately the very concept of individual identity is questioned.
