Up in the air between Stockholm and Oslo, we follow seven people and a heart on its way from one body to another. All seven has something they are running from. When the heavy plane body is diving down towards the ground, they see life in another perspective. Written by
The Norwegian Rocker
The Norwegian play is extremely theatrically and pretentiously, in a poor way. Some glimpses of really good play is spotted here and there but a real quality difference are seen from the Swedish actors, holding a much higher quality. It takes a while before the real themes of the movie, realization and conciliation of the characters flaws and misdoings is addressed and even though the movie is only 75min long, slow rhythm is present, in the sense of slow logic movement of the happenings. The use of background music only is chosen in some of the scenes, unfortunately this only add's up to the pretentiousness of the movie as a whole.
