Two young people stand on a street corner in a run-down part of New York, kissing. Despite the lawlessness of the district they are left unmolested. A short distance away walk Maria and Andreas. They are on their first date. In an episodic style the film tells of encounters and love among young people. The stories are set in Cairo, Paris, on the coast of Normandy and in New York. Written by
A film critic in a Norwegian newspaper refused to give the movie a rating. "To give "Dis" a rating of 1 would be to acknowledge this product's right to call itself a movie, and that I will not do." See more »
'Dis', meaning fog, supposedly refers to the director's cerebral condition at any stage of the production process. This cannot possibly be called a piece of work as the intra-skull fog is miraculously transmitted directly to the screen. If there is any content at all in this thing, apparently deserving the label film because there is movement on screen, it is garbage. No kidding, garbage takes actually up the screen in a pivotal scene, a love scene actually. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't mean that this is a peak, because there are no peaks, no pace. In line with the title this is an endless piece of uninteresting sceneries, desperately seeking excitement in so-called exotic places. You have to be prepared for it, because you will be bored and at best bewildered if you're not watching it for the purpose of entertaining yourself by the ridiculously crappy lines (or lack of them), direction, photography, cinematography, edition, idea. The masterpiece is that this low-budget film got any funding at all. My vote must be 1, but with this remark: The bottom end of the scale is way too kind in this case, but by all means: this is absolutely fascinating.
