A main character who, when it comes to the opposite sex, really needs to exercise some quality control...
26 June 2014 | by euroGarySee all my reviews

'I am Yours' is about a young Pakistani woman living in Oslo. Whereas her conservative family have barely made an effort to integrate into Norwegian society, struggling actress and single mother Mina has gone to the opposite extreme, living a hedonistic lifestyle of dancing, drinking - and flirting with a succession of unsuitable men like a moth repeatedly bashing itself against a lightbulb. When she meets self-centred Swedish filmmaker Jesper she thinks her prince may have come - while the audience are thinking instead "No dear, you've already got one unpleasantly needy young child, you don't need another..."

And that's the problem with the film: Mina is a charming young woman, sweet-natured despite being starved of parental affection, but it's hard to feel sympathy for a main character who consistently takes such obviously bad decisions. I don't mind so much that the film doesn't have much structure - it merely plops the viewer down in the middle of Mina's life and 96 minutes later plucks him out again - but when initial sympathy for the main character turns to resignation ("Oh blimey, she's flinging herself at yet another man she knows nothing about"), it's in danger of losing the viewer's attention. But on the other hand, lead actress Amrita Acharia does a nice job of creating a vulnerable character, and, having lived in Oslo for three years, I had fun spotting places in the city that I know.
