The blues
15 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie does a lot of things right. It's beautiful to look at (especially if you like blue!), in regards to both the cinematography and the settings used. At times is uses visuals really well to further the story, like the shots of her apartment. The actors plays their parts really well, either a product of great casting, or the actors shaping the character. Or both. The story is interesting too, with this fictional department of adjustments that at first seems absurd, but then appear to be a reasonable establishment. It seems to have its science down, when it comes to the whole kilo-business, but manages to keep a healthy distance from the technobabble.

The plot is where the problem lies. It is OK, but does not really justify being at the center of a feature length movie. The overall plot is good, and I'm into the "arch" of the characters as well. It has some really funny moments, but maybe too few. Maybe that is the movie's biggest problem? Balancing the absurd and the realistic is obviously difficult, and you have to get both right for the best moments.

Check it out if it seems like its up your alley. Bent Hamer is great, and if you like him then you'll like this movie too. Maybe his previous movies just set the bar too high?
