Norwegian screenwriter, actor and director Stian Kristiansen's third feature film which he co-wrote with screenwriters Kamilla Krogsveen and Ravn Lanesskog after an idea by him, premiered in Norway, was shot on locations in Norway and is a Norwegian production which was produced by Norwegian producers Yngve Sæther and Sigve Endresen. It tells the story about a seventeen-year-old theatre actress named Tale who lives in a city in Western Norway and who returns home after having been to an audition where she was told that she was too young. One day when Tale is with her friend named Nora helping out a photographer with his exhibition, he tells her about a renowned Norwegian playwright named Jon Fosse and Nora tells her that the photographer's friend whom is there with him is a revered actor named Lars Nykvist. Inspired by these new encounters, Tale begins reading a play about doubt and love called "Dream of autumn", figures that it might be a good idea to do something new at her home-place and inspires her friends whom she is in a small theatre group with to arrange a stage play.
Subtly and finely directed by Norwegian filmmaker Stian Kristiansen, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the main character's point of view, draws a gripping and humane portrayal of an inspirited and reasonably ambitious actress whom after convincing a local actor to be her and her friends' instructor, has to act with a soccer player named Vegard whom has no interest whatsoever in theatre. While notable for its naturalistic and atmospheric milieu depictions, fine cinematography by cinematographer Trond Tønder, production design by production designer Arne Bru Haug and use of light, this character-driven and narrative-driven story about internal choices and how the understanding of the central theme of a play can bring people closer to their innermost truths, and where interactive communication through literature and performing, however reluctant someone might be to participate, can create and improve human relations, depicts two merging and empathic studies of character and contains a great and timely score by composer Frode Johannessen.
This commendably humorous, conversational, mindfully theatrical and atmospheric drama which is set during a summer in Sandnes, Norway in the 21st century and where a woman named Tonje becomes worried when her boyfriend responds to a question regarding whether or not love will survive in the face of everyday life by saying that it will die, the lives of a theatre director and his performers are significantly affected by the story they are acting out and where love is born in a conscientious woman who becomes as important to a 40-year-old man as he to her, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, subtle character development and continuity, colorful characters, use of music, scenes between Tale and Lars, comment by Lars Nykvist : "Is it that important, what's true or not?", the charmingly understated acting performance by Norwegian actress Eili Harboe and the fine acting performances by Norwegian actress Johanna Knudsen Rostad and Norwegian actors Øyvind Larsen Runestad and Kristoffer Joner. A reflective, gracefully romantic and heartfelt narrative feature.
