In the quest for the twenty-fifth hour
23 October 2016 | by losindiscretoscineSee all my reviews

After an opening that shrinks the heart, "The Hour of the Lynx" shows how two opposed women try to help Drengen, a young boy played by Frederik Christian Johansen. Thanks to the slowly progression of the story, it is possible to notice the evolution in the character's emotions. Furthermore, the great use of flash-backs allows the spectator to dive into Drengen's childhood and to see the beautiful relationship between his grandfather and him as well as the unexpected change that turned his life upside down. Thanks to this movie, we learn that even the gloomiest stories could be illuminated by a ray of hope. Because even if the path is narrow, we all can try to become a lynx and find the twenty-fifth hour of the day when we can be happy, far away from the world that surrounds us.
