Knocking is a twisty, claustrophobic and gut-wrenching thriller streaked with horror, from director and Cannes Palme D’Or winner Frida Kempff, with a fierce and soul-baring central performance from Cecilia Milocco.
A woman (Molly) who has just experienced a traumatic incident is unnerved by a haunting knocking sound from upstairs in her new apartment building.
As the noises become more desperate and increasingly sound like cries for help, she confronts her neighbours, but it seems no one else can hear them.
In an unsettling quest for truth, Molly soon realises that no one believes her, and begins to question if she even believes herself – a realisation that is perhaps even more chilling.
