The German illusionist Dirk Ohm arrives in Grong in a rural part of Norway on an ice cold winters day, and gets involved in a case of searching after a disappeared woman, in whom he falls in love with. The film tells a fictional story about the last days of the real illusionist Dirk Ohm, which mysteriously disappeared himself in Grong in 2003. The story is inspired by what might have happened before he went missing, and ask the question on what is an illusion, and what is not.Written by
Two misterious real events in Norway. a film about them. not for explain. not for present. only using the two disappearences as support for a poetic drama. the first challenge - the desire of viewer to discover the sense of story. it is present but it represents the work of each viewer. the second - to define this puzzle with chaotic pieces. the good point - August Diehl precise performance. looking as Beat. Edward Poppe, seeming be a sort of Franz Kafka character, he has the science to explore, in delicate and convincing manner, his character. a film who gives to you splendid images of locations. a cop case, at first sigh, becoming pretext for a trip across the fundamental crisis pillars of present. a film about solitude, fear and hope. about hate and angry and resignation. about isolation. and appearences. a film not for a large public and with high virtues to disappoint. because, it is just a poetic film. who seems be, in many scenes , a personal message to the right public.
