Just as with Austrian Markus Schleinzer’s "Michael," Norwegian Eva Sørhaug’s is obsessed with the banality of evil. Three men go about their everyday activities before the tales explode or implode as the men produce acts of senseless violence. What makes them do such acts is left to conjecture. Just as "Michael" was seen in the light of the Fritzl case, those looking for real-life context will point to the Breivik mass murder of last year. In splitting the film into three stories, each showing the final 90 minutes in the life of a victim, Sørhaug comments on the frequency with which evil occurs. Defiantly un-dramatic until its conclusion, Sørhaug’s essay on evil is unapologetically dour and grotesque. Criticwire grade: C+ [Kaleem Aftab] »
