"Dance with words..."
4 January 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Norwegian screenwriter, producer and theatre and film director Arild Brinchmann's television film which he produced and which was written by Norwegian critic and author Hans Heiberg (1904-1978), is an adaptation of a play from 1879 by Norwegian author and playwright Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) which is inspired by real events in the life of an author from Tromsø, Norway named Laura Kieler (1849-1932). It premiered in Norway, was shot in studio in Norway and is a Norwegian production. It tells the story about a mother named Nora Helmer who lives in a house in Norway with her husband named Torvald who is a solicitor, their three children, their housemaid named Helene and their nanny named Anne-Marie. It's Christmas and after returning home from a shopping trip and having a talk with her spouse, Nora is visited by her friend named Kristine Linde whom she last met a decade ago.

Subtly and precisely directed by Norwegian filmmaker Arild Brinchmann, this finely paced and somewhat fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the main character's point of view, draws a dense and increasingly dramatic portrayal of a Norwegian housewife whom has been keeping a secret from her husband for many years and how her life is altered when she is reunited with a widowed attorney named Nils Krogstad whom she once made a commitment to. While notable for its atmospheric interior milieu depictions, reverent cinematography, production design by production designer Christian Egemar and costume design by costume designer Mabi Helweg, this dialog-driven and narrative-driven story about a friend who hasn't been doing too well during the last three years since her husband passed away and whom after learning that her girlfriend's husband has become the new manager of a bank, decided to ask him for a job, depicts several in-depth studies of character.

This reflectively historic, humorous and conversationally involving dance with words from the early 1970s which is set in a house in Norway in the 19th century and where a wife whom is not hesitant about announcing her happiness to her visiting friend now that her family is doing so well, but when hearing her guest talking in justification of herself about the sacrifices she has made for her mother and brothers, becomes competitive and for the sake of proving that her goodness is just as good tells her a secret, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, rhythmic continuity, comment by Kristine Linde: "Two on one wreck are better off than each one alone." and the remarkable acting performances by Norwegian actresses Lise Fjeldstad and Bente Børsum and Norwegian actors Per-Theodor Haugen, Ole-Jørgen Nilsen and Knut Risan. A timeless and majestic character piece.
