Don't let the generic title fool you!
10 December 2017 | by WordsmithSee all my reviews

Trädgårdsgatan - Garden Lane

The title may not reveal all that much and might even seem boring, but be warned, the cover reveals little. I selected this movie because of the sheer subtlety in storytelling set out in the leaflet of the local film Festival I was at. Imagine: early Sunday morning, going to the movie theater, being confronted with 2 time lines: the now and the past. The story of the past that is set out sucked me in almost instantly and only a few glimpses of the now intertwine (it almost felt as interfering with the ongoing story). Although all that had happened may not be for the frail of heart, it had an enthralling quality to it with lives being lived just as they come along, happiness coming and going. Gradually we get some hints of what happens in the now, but how is it connected? Nevertheless I kept wanting to just skip back to the past, that bit is really intriguing. And it didn't disappoint, the past told most of the story about 2 children and their parents, struggling with acceptance, love, (drug) abuse, but mainly day-to-day survival and the hard choices that need to be made. In the end the present intertwined and it delivered the final piece to the puzzle, leaving me breathless. Life is just happens to you and it can be so... Unexpected. For me this was a great way to start my Sunday.
