2022 - Vesper
Vesper debuted at the 2022 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival on 2 July 2022. The film opened in French theatres on 18 August 2022. It was released in the United States, Lithuania and Turkey on 30 September 2022, and in Germany and Singapore on 6 October 2022.
As of October 27, 2022[update], Vesper has grossed $49,493 in the United States, and $1.5 million in other territories, including $889,529 from France and $414,985 from Russia, for a worldwide total of $1.576 million.
A film that for some reason went unnoticed by most in 2022 was Vesper, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi film with a teenage protagonist. While there is no shortage of films with this basic premise, Vesper does something different. It is a visual spectacle that many audiences missed out on with its box office numbers severely lacking, making only $1.5 million globally.
With little to no marketing and a limited theatrical release, Vesper quietly came and went with sci-fi fans not even realizing what they missed. That said, let's take a closer look at the film and why this overlooked sci-fi movie from 2022 is worth a watch.
Vesper is both heartbreaking and hopeful, diving into the depths of despair and leaving its characters and audience there for longer than is comfortable. It tackles heavy issues like grief, purpose, and the horrors of the family with nuance and sensitivity. It's set in a world that is ours but still alien, hostile but beautiful. Vesper is an undeservedly overlooked film from 2022, and deserves a legion of fans and accolades.
The Hope College Great Performance Series will continue its 2022-23 season with the Amsterdam-based Busch Piano Trio on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall of the Jack H. Miller for Musical Arts. 041b061a72
