Average short film with climbing drama
26 May 2003 | by pbnSee all my reviews

This film features two of the actors who have achieved fame in the Danish film boom of the past five-six years. Ann Eleonora Jørgensen and Peter Gantzler also starred alongside each other in the drama series "Taxa" and the romantic comedy "Italiensk for begyndere".

In this short film by writer-director Kari Vidø they are two Danes who have gone mountain climbing in Sweden. They meet two Swedes, played by Reine Brynolfsson and Jessica Zandén. The outside drama of a climbing accident is combined with the inside drama of tension in the relationships of both couples.

I found the whole matter to be slightly uninteresting for the average viewer. The story felt a bit too schematic to quite capture my imagination or identification. This is, I think, a common risk in short films where a story has to be told through few scenes, but the best directors avoid it completely. In addition, the dialog sounded slightly unnatural, which reflected on the acting performances, and the cinematography, while well-crafted, felt uninspired.
