Storyline

Christer (27) is on his way to work when a seagull shits on his shirt. Down in the Laundromat in the basement he suddenly remembers that all his rent money is in his shirt pocket. In an attempt to save the money, he takes out the main fuse of the building to stop the washing machine. When the superintendent puts the fuse back in, an old man in an apartment above clumsily changes fuses in his own fuse-cabinet. The man dies immediately. His daughter, Leni (40) has lived completely isolated with her father. Now she is alone for the first time of her life. When fresh first-time mother Heidi (30) is down to get her laundry, she notices that all the machines have stopped. She is in a hurry and has to grab the clothes all wet. Without knowing it, Christer has started the inevitable. Written by Per Schreiner

Pointless film
21 February 2009 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

This film has no originality. It portrays people with problems which we have gotten used to seeing in many other films, including many from Norway, Denmark, Iceland... There is nothing special about their situation as far as film characters are concerned and these people are portrayed with little connection to their past, surroundings or friends. They are seemingly connected to each other by a series of events started by Christer's ego-centric behavior - which we understand is what drove his friends away from him.

The director apparently attempted to pay homage to Hitchcock's The Birds (which is signaled right at the beginning with a poster of the film hung on the wall of Christer's kitchen) but it fails miserably. The end, where we see Lina swimming in the rain, is very disappointing, despite Annie Lennox's beautiful voice.
