Great drama about the messiness of human relationships.
When it comes to break ups and relationships I've always thought that 99% of the time there is no right or wrong. There is no one big event that clearly makes one person the good guy and the other the bad. This series captures that reality and presents it in a way that will challenge the viewer from a different perspective with each episode.
It starts out as a very slow moving drama centered around one female actor who's boyfriend is directing a play that stars her. Her boyfriend/director also casts her ex-boyfriend to play her love interest in the play. They show the same events from 6 different perspectives. You never really know who's using who, or who's right or wrong. You'll make up your mind after watching the girlfriend's perspective, then watch the same events through another character's perspective and totally change your mind. If you love good drama, great dialogue, and stripped down performances, you'll love Forestillinger. But let me warn you right now; get ready to hate each of the characters at some point throughout the season because no one is innocent in this story.
