Undiagnosed diseases, unknown dangers, and the potential for harm to children are three of the most unnerving things that may happen, and the newest psychological thriller on Netflix is jam-packed with all three. The film “Fever Dream,” which is based on the book of the same name (though the original title is more appropriately “Rescue Distance”), follows a mother called Amanda (Mara Valverde) as she describes what transpired when she and her little daughter Nina traveled to the country for a holiday (Guillermina Sorribes Liotta).

David’s mother Carola (Dolores Fonzi), who befriends Amanda when she first comes in the little hamlet, tells Amanda about the unusual incidents that have recently afflicted the area, is the enigmatic young kid David (Marcelo Michinaux), whom Amanda narrates the experiences to.

It might be challenging to determine the actual realism of the situation because “Fever Dream” takes place in Amanda’s recollection and is communicated to the audience through her own fragmentary narrative. It comes as no surprise, then, that a little explanation would be helpful for the conclusion.

Let’s examine the concluding scenes of “Fever Dream” and discuss their significance.

The underlying danger in Fever Dream

By the time “Fever Dream” ends, we understand that Amanda passed away from her condition. The same poisonous pesticides and chemicals that are routinely used on crops in the tiny town are the source of her sickness and also pose a threat to Nina’s health. Without realizing it, Amanda and Nina spent the majority of their time playing in the nearby fields, lounging on the grass, and swimming in the local ponds.

At the film’s conclusion, Nina is likewise in a precarious condition. Carola tells Amanda, who is on her deathbed, that she will be taking Nina to the Green House, where David was previously healed via soul transmigration. The fathers of David and Nina are shown in the movie’s epilogue talking about how their children have changed as a result of the circumstances that led to Amanda’s death: Omar (German Palacios) for David and Marco (Guillermo Pfening) for Nina. When David reaches for Nina’s beloved stuffed animal in a heartbreaking scene, it appears as though some of Nina’s spirit has been transferred into David’s body.

The conclusion of “Fever Dream” is therefore equally ambiguous as the whole of Amanda’s narration, and in many ways, that is the goal. The narrative that the spectator is exposed to is akin to a fever dream.

In Fever Dream, mothers are portrayed.

In order to determine if her daughter is close enough to be saved should she get into trouble, Amanda frequently refers to the “rescue distance” between them. However, as we soon discover, Amanda didn’t consider a concern until it was too late, and Nina falls very ill after being exposed to chemical pollutants in the little village. David tries to convince Amanda that she missed the most crucial warning signs the entire time, thus her concern with calculating the rescue distance to Nina proves to be a fruitless exercise.

Carola also embodies another facet of parenting, namely the guilt a mother feels when her child suffers injury. Carola believed David to be an entirely different person after his soul was divided in two in an effort to preserve his life, however, it is unclear if he genuinely changed or if Carola’s impression of him altered. She could have struggled to acknowledge her part in David’s predicament and cope with the effects of his illness since she felt so guilty about not being able to stop him from being sick.
