Director: Karin Fahlén
Original Title: Gondolen
Knock-out performances and a very clever screenplay define this multi-story film from Sweden. An aspiring writer obsessed with darkness and light; an uptight single mother unable to adopt; a game developer learning Japanese for his big break; and a noisy relationship break-up are the overlapping ingredients here in a film of dark secrets, political duplicity and intricate life lessons in the world of art and commerce. Humour is peppered throughout and it is set in cold, dark November. What more could you need?
