This goes beyond the "dysfunctional family" film, into the realm of dysfunctional society. And what makes it all the more strange, is how wrong it is, and at the same time, everyone accepts it. Which is really how our world functions, people don't all behave as they should, but we try to go on as if everything is fine. The camerawork accentuates the feeling by shooting dysfucntionally. For fans of our fuckdup world.
Thoughtful. Well designed. Controlled. Beautifully framed with great intelligence. The acting overall was excellent and the stories, whilst apparently fragmentary, served to represent various forces shaping contemporary society- it is a sharp critique of mainstream culture & its petty conformity to arbitrary, one might say superficial rules. A good film from a very good director.
An interesting mirror on society and particularly how we act when governed by peer pressure. It's easy for the viewer to judge from the fly on the wall position the fixed camera gives us, but I'm sure many of us can relate to at least a few of the situations highlighted in this film.
Fy faen! Hva kan jeg si. Denne blir bare bedre og bedre, mer sann for hvert gjennsyn. Og like uutholdelig hver gang. Denne minner meg på hvor sterk film kan være, og for en viktig og stor rolle det er å være filmskaper.
