Surprised
10 June 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Carl Theodor Dreyer has spoiled us with his films. After seeing Ordet, Gertrud, Vampyr, La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc and Dies Irae I don't expected this great surprise.

Tva manniskor is a film Dreyer make ten years before Ordet and it has much to do. The film is developed in just 73 minutes and what catches my attention is that all time the action happens in 4 walls. Maybe two decorated: The Lundell's lounge and the bedroom.

Like I said before, I'm surprised as a movie like that is going trapping with its plot, that is simple but at the same time involves multiple edges and secret relations. What I like about the movie is the long shots that Dreyer do of the two lovers looking ahead and talking about love and death. These long shots finish with kisses with lots of love and often the camera forward movements as we will see in Ordet, where the camera gives a twist around the characters and is enveloping them.

I liked this film and I advise people see it. The final is very surprising.
