There's no Miami
30 January 2018 | by EnoVarmaSee all my reviews

This one offers excellent directing, good acting and a so-so script.

For much of the running time the less than original storyline doesn't matter, because the real story is in the characters. Still, the ending is somewhat disappointing.

Two sisters come together after years and years. They share an unhappy childhood, and dream of Shangri-La, which in their minds resembles Miami. That's where they're heading, but there are obstacles, of course, like the mounting debt to some local gangsters. The sisters try to get the money via dance shows in more or less seedy night clubs, and also by scamming idiot men.

Zaida Bergroth is a hugely talented film maker, who shines at cinematic storytelling and at getting to the core of the characters. In this, her best film to date, especially grabbing is her use of music, which contributes greatly to the atmosphere. One of the best compilation soundtracks of 2017.

Miami is a a director's movie. Maybe next time the script rises to the same level.
