Learn about Norway, teens, battering adults, disco, and some colorful cinematography.
If you have difficulty seeing the similarities between disco competition and religion, see the Norwegian drama Disco for the answer. Disco is energetic, hypnotic, and softly sexual. Religion of the Pentecostal kind can be loud and repetitive, full of concern for the devil and Jesus and accompanied by sexual shenanigans sometimes by the pastors themselves.
Fair Mirjam (Josefine Frida Pettersen), a young Nordic blond beauty is a champion disco competitor and a Christian who sings devotional pop music. Given the sordid past of a father who molested children, she has doubts about the reality of a god and calls for forgiveness by various adult testimonials.
She refers to her agnosticism, which you’d have to infer if not for a little speech and some revealing facial signals, with too little dialogue but heaps of closeups. Well, I can identify with the agnosticism and have many experiences with teen reticence. Religion, disco, or not, teens are inscrutable.
Contrasting scenes of acrobatic sometimes suggestive performances are the heavy-duty scenes of Mirjam being chastised and preached to about being more committed to Jesus. As she listens to her step-father lecture her mother and sister about keeping away from his fraudulent televangelist brother, she also witnesses her mother accusing dad of indiscretions.
To ramp up her devotion to Chris and respond to the leaders’ battering, she attends an island religious summer camp, where we watch in disbelief as the adults expunge demons from kids by having them forcefully submerged and breathe into bags resulting in their passing out. No, this is not a comedy, but it is a cautionary tale about extremism be it in religion or dancing.
Not much is resolved for saints and sinners because the script calls for little commentary on the struggle for good and evil. What’s there is pretty costumes, colorful backgrounds, and inane talk about being a friend of Christ while sins are the extracurricular activity of choice for responsible adults. Can we blame the young for being skeptical?
Learn about Norway, teens, battering adults, disco, and some colorful cinematography. It’s actually relaxing. Prime Video.
Good premises, but lacks structure
I much agree with the reviews written by JohnFilmFreak and bente_rogne.
I think the beginning of the movie is very good and interesting, about a young girl being a champion dancer but struggling with bulimia. But then the focus changes to her very religious family, and a very creepy stepfather. Which is also interesting; it just gets too much and we never really learn anything about anything,a dn move constantly changes its focus.
Overall the acting is great; it’s nice to see Josefine Frida move on from her character of Noora and does so convincingly. None of the adults are very likable. But acting is good.
I think the “attack-scene” towards the end of the movie was distasteful. Way too similar to what actually happened at Utøya at 2011 when 69 people were killed.
