Worldclass
5 February 2007 | by don_DjangoSee all my reviews

"Partus" is the Latin word for when a child gets separated from it's mother at birth.

The film portraits a mother having trouble cutting the invisible umbilical cord from her son.

Munch-Fals has yet again outdone himself with this short-film. The social-realistic angle works great with the storyline and doesn't wrap anything in.

The minimalistic dialog let's you digest the sights and sounds just the way Mikkel intended you to.

This film won a Robert for best short-film 2007. During the ceremony, it was said that some movies are perfectly made for the short format and Partus is a great example on that.

The movie is perfectly balanced and touches you deep in different emotioncentres.

5 out of 5 hats and 9 out of 10 stars from me
