Storyline

Poetic, experimental and different, Container is described by Lukas Moodysson as "a black and white silent movie with sound" and with the following words; "A woman in a man's body. A man in a woman's body. Jesus in Mary's stomach. The water breaks. It floods into me. I can't close the lid. My heart is full." Written by Sido Lanters

The most intimate and sincere exploration of the darkest secrets of a persons mind
4 February 2007 | by jguerrero-1See all my reviews

A disturbing but very intelligent and sensitive movie that dares to uncover the darkest thoughts and feelings of a human being, which are at the same time childish and innocent. Only recommended for people fearless enough to confront themselves. The most intimate film I have ever seen. Once again the director manages to address in a very original way the complexity of the human being, the desire for acceptance and the fear of being considered different. It shows how ambivalent our feelings are, how society has constructed a fixed idea of guilt with anything that is not considered normal by social standards when there is nothing more human than to dare to be oneself at the price of being misunderstood. Not recommended for simple minds.
