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!

The first half is clever, well acted and coherent, told in two temporal planes. The main character, the one connecting the two parallel storylines, is refreshingly portrayed as a person rather than some magical spirit guide, one with nature, as often indigenous people are. After a while, though, it kind of flips out. Magic enters the scene, out-of-character allegiance swings occur, people are being generally weird. But the decline is not too bad, and the film as a hole still holds water.
