CGiii Comment

Artistic boundaries do not exist...well, they bloody well ought to...and, if they did [or, do], this incredible indulgence would never have made it to the screen!

After a tortutuous [and mind-numbing] 112 minutes, it all amounts to one great big pile of pseudo-intellectual-sexual guff...packed to the rafters with mental and physical probings...who is me? Let me bonk me to find out! Galloping ginger cats...there goes the audience!

Part scripted, part improvised...wholly incomprehensible and lamentably risible. Ms Odell - increduously - gathered a mighty fine company of actors, convinced them to do as she directed, forgot [completely] about the audience...as nothing is answered in the film...the only question that remains is...why?


The(ir) Blurb...

Swedish director and visual artist, Anna Odell (The Reunion), conducts a social experiment in which she aims to challenge the gender roles that men and women have in the society of today. In a purpose-build warehouse set she confronts herself with the Swedish actor and masculine icon Mikael Persbrandt, and invites seven other top Scandinavian actors to live with them and act as alter egos of herself and Mikael.

The group embarks on a game without rules, which leads to real conflicts and funny, absurd and emotional situations since Trine Dyrholm, Jens Albinus, Vera Vitali, Shanti Roney, Sofie Gråbøl and Thure Lindhardt for many weeks will have to “stay in their roles” at all times.
