What bizarre takes on this inspiring story.
1 January 2021 | by biotech9See all my reviews

Fascinating 'reviews of the times' here, one review slates this documentary because it's obviously filmed by the guy himself. It's also obviously an amateur production ,made within limitations, what does this guy expect, Werner Herzog filming with hidden cameras?

And another review with a wonderfully narcissistic and unbelievably forced hot-take of this documentary as being bad because it doesn't talk about homelessness.What in incredibly dense point to attempt to make, this is a documentary about a student who goes through some bad breakup and then locks everything he owns up, and tries to live without the hoarded crap he's accumulated so far in his life. It has nothing to say about homelessness, and to try to connect them in order to virtue signal is hideously egotistical.

This documentary is great, the start is great, with the naked run across a freezing town to get the first item, it feels like a small labour of love. The take away is a valuable lesson, our hoarded items hold us back and keep us tied down. If Konmari is the Japanese Spa of minimalism, this story is the Finnish jump in a frozen lake version of that.
