Beautiful, powerful, and tragic 8 minutes
25 August 2008 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

First shown at the Malmö Festival this film went on to acquire real kudos, not only as the winner of the Odense film festival in Denmark, but was also shown at the Tribeca, Locarna, and Flanders film festivals.

It had a short release as the short to Bowling For Columbine and is based on a very famous Swedish short story by Stig Dagerman. Dagerman was a non-conventional Swede, he was a syndo-anarchist, and is considered by many critics to be one of the first of the modern novelists in Sweden.

The short story that this is based on is an extremely powerful account of a day, supposedly normal and fun, that will lead to the death of a child due to careless speeding. (Dagerman wrote it at the behest of several Swedish insurance companies to combat a rise in dangerous driving.) This short captures that beautifully. The writing in the short story paints a very ordinary happy day that builds in tension by revealing it's ending almost immediately - but the people in the story continue to be innocent, happy, unconcerned - until the ultimate tragedy strikes.

Well shot, and very well directed - this is an excellent short that really captures the spirit of the piece, and is incredibly moving in its shots of a small child and two families who are changed forever.

For a short it carries real weight and is a triumph.

Recommended.
