Acclaimed director Joanna Hogg’s mesmerising fourth film is a semi-autobiographical memoir of a toxic relationship that almost breaks a young woman starting out at film school. Tom Burke’s Anthony, the seductive quiet destroyer, is a strong screen presence. The Souvenir of the title is a painting from a bygone century and Hogg tackles her familiar themes of class, privilege and who has the accessibility to create art. Stylistically she avoids traditional film conventions preferring to work with body language.
