"This is how it always ends - a little magic, a little smoke, something floating. We begin like this. It's not like the beginning - so take it easy. But it's important. Believe me."
Christoffer Boe's debut film is a mesmerizing love story that challenges the viewer to follow his ever changing storyline in a very unique way. Boe warns "it's not so complicated - there are four people - Aimee and I, August - we are married. Then there's Alex, the young photographer and his beautiful girlfriend Simone - they're not married. Alex and Aimee are going to meet."
Boe creatively injects himself into the role of August, an author. "They're all looking for love" and thus the story begins. The surrealism that follows is captivating. August continually plays with, or reconstructs the storyline, which in turn affects Alex - essentially transforming him into a free-falling bystander of his own life, leaving him to deal with the choices he himself didn't actually make - but after all, he's just a fictional character from August's writings.
This personal favorite of mine is a testament that creativity, beautiful camera work and editing, solid acting, and the right choice of music can overcome the budget restraints most debuting directors face. This stylish film will not disappoint. It is all film. It is all construction.
