Martin Lund directs Jonas Tidemann, Elli Rhiannon Müller Osbourne and Saara Sipila-Kristoffersen in this Norwegian teen drama where a popular boy begins to fall for the troubled outcast at his school.
Well made and with a noteworthy performance from Elli Rhiannon Müller Osbourne. At the midway point she moves out of the foreground and the movie solely focuses on the outwardly perfect Jonas Tidemann’s dilemmas. He’s a wet and makes some awful choices. Imagine if you had to watch all of Pretty In Pink from Andrew McCarthy’s point of view? No, thank you. Shame as there was some real spiky energy in that first half, the snowy setting was particularly eye catching.
