Filmfestivalen 2016

Film, film, film....

Another epic journey is coming up! I plan to go to such varied and diverse places as Colombia, Parallell Paris, India and Iran, and even travel through time, space and dreams. It's a cineastic journey, though. My flights will be the lobby, my accommodation will be the comfy chairs and my tour guides will be movie directors. It's time, again, for Göteborg Film Festival!

Une histoire d'âme - Confessionarration by Bénédicte Acolas

Based on a script by Ingmar Bergman, Acolas puts Sophie Marceau in the part Liv Ullman was set to play. And it's a dream role for any actress, I'd wager. For this is no ordinary film. Sure, there are costumes, set design, camera work. There are lines, lighting and roles. There's even special effects. But that's not needed. This is a play, a radio play even, with just one actor. And, quite possibly, one role. So, while innovative and well executed, with an amazing performance by Marceau, one has to wonder, what's the point? Which might be part of the point.
