Storytelling....
5 March 2021 | by philip-00197See all my reviews

Let's start by getting one thing out of the way; this is no 1/10 (however many films the critic claims to have seen). Film making is all about story telling - and Schyffert/Brandelius certainly do that.

They also venture into a, relatively, new format and at times push the envelope of how to make film. However... bold as "Spring Uje, spring" may be - it is nowhere near excellence. It's low budget and makes no excuses for being so. But somehow it feels as though it's a dead end concept - and no amount of further funding would have delivered a home run.

The end result is quaint, at times slow and often borderline childish. But it is reasonable storytelling and if you can get into, or look past, the format - it delivers beyond your average Hollywood "standard". For the cineast it delivers a few novel takes alongside a few more "don't dos".

Commendable though the approach is; the shortcomings feel superior in number to the good moments. By all means watch, but it's an acquired taste - and those with such acquisitions are likely to feel more frustration than admiration.
