  • dionysus67's rating of the film Line

    Intense and finely acted drama about youth, the duties to parents, the bourgeois mentality, the resentment that stems from it and the adventurous character/type of person that dawns in Norwegian modernity. There are light Bergmanesque touches here, particularly in the exquisite scene of the chase on the beach. Philosophically intriguing, it ends up with a redeeming rupture.
