A chilling tale of domestic violence and sisterhood with a paranormal underbelly.
5/5

Review

Mattias Olsson’s short thriller film takes viewers on a gripping journey as a young woman tries to assist her close friend in escaping domestic violence. Lina Sundén leads the cast with a compelling performance as Elisa, a passionate photographer, while Linnea Pihl shines as Linda. Johan Granli delivers a chilling portrayal of the narrative antagonist, Fredrik.

While the core of the story revolves around Linda’s toxic relationship with Fredrik, the plot takes an intriguing turn with the introduction of a mysterious vintage camera and its uncanny predictions. Without giving away too much, the narrative is captivating, delicately crafted, and well-structured, keeping audiences on the edge of their seats throughout.

The acting in the film is truly astonishing, with the cast skillfully conveying emotions even with limited dialogue. Each performance adds depth and authenticity to the characters, making the audience deeply invested in their struggles and triumphs.

Patrik Nilsson’s cinematography is a standout aspect of the film, beautifully framing each scene with meticulous attention to detail. The visuals are visually stunning, showcasing the director’s skill and care in crafting a highly cinematic and professional look.

Mattias Olsson’s short film is a powerful and thought-provoking tale of friendship and abuse. With strong performances, a captivating narrative, and exquisite cinematography, this Swedish-language film (with English subtitles) is a must-watch for those seeking a gripping and emotionally charged cinematic experience.
