LIMBO is a hit with the Montreal audience
30 August 2010 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

The premiere screening of Limbo at the World Film Festival in Montreal was very well received. A period piece (cerca 1970s) set in Port of Spain, Trinidad, Limbo follows Sonia & her two children as they leave the familiar milieu of Oslo to join her husband Jo (Henrik Rafaelsen), an oilfield engineer on contract in the sunny Caribbean. Sonia (magnificently played by Line Verndal) is immediately out of place in this unfamiliar world of expatriate Scandinavians. Servants run her household, and the Catholic schools are too strict for her liberal background. When she learns Jo has had a dalliance in her absence, her world becomes unhinged. The tension which unfolds leaves Sonia psychologically scarred & her relationship in tatters. Sonia faces the choice of whether to stay or go. A similar fate awaits their expatriate friends Daniel (Bryan Brown) & his wife Charlotte (Lena Endre) and the tension in both relationships is not resolved until the final scene, if at all. Limbo is the first feature film directed and written by Maria Sodahl, who spent a year as a child living in Trinidad & directs Limbo with incredible sensitivity.
