The first pseudo-documentary (?)
10 June 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Gitarrmongot is a pseudo-documentary about different people from Gothenburg. Their stories are not connected, but they all have a thing in common; what they do or what they are goes beyond the norms of society. The main character is a boy with Down's syndrome who spends his days playing a guitar downtown.

The style is the same throughout the film, the cameras position is fixed and there are only observations (i.e. no interviews or other forms of interaction). All scenes are directed and what you see is acting. However, the people are not actors, they are (mostly) the peoples whose story the director wants to tell (which explains the word pseudo-documentary).

The film is very open, so if you want some kind of message or moral from it you might get disappointed. The director has made several comments about the film and why he made it. I think his point was well made, but I'm not sure if I would have understood it without his comments. My best advice is to see the film with patience, take it for what it is. If you're puzzles search for interviews of the director.
