Flawed but well worth watching
9 October 2017 | by garsonfarmSee all my reviews

Like other reviewers, I was frustrated by a lot of half-baked elements of the film. The plot disappears about halfway through the film, leaving just an apparently random series of encounters with random people for no particular reason. And the fake documentary presentation style doesn't really work, partly because many people just crop up with no meaningful explanation to link them into what's left of the story and there is no proper conclusion when the film just stops.

But the people are fascinating with back stories which make you want to learn more, the atmosphere of wasted lives through the film is very powerful, some haunting scenery, and a superb music soundtrack by Jonas Munk. As a series of passive observations on "small people" who can't survive successfully in "the system", it is a very powerful portrait and stayed in my head for a long time. So worth watching if you can approach it with a blank canvas and can just let it unroll without looking for it to follow any particular direction or deliver something specific.
