Brutal, straight up realsim about getting the monkey off your back
Oslo, October 31st (2011)
A highly realistic, intimate view of a young man who has completed a drug abuse program and is trying to rejoin his life. It’s a rough ride, sometimes boring, sometimes raw, but it’s the real thing, and if you have an interest in this kind of common problem without watching a documentary, this is the movie.
Though set in Oslo, there is a universal quality to all of this. Yes, the leading man, Anders, has the usual problem getting jobs. But that’s just the beginning. It’s about friends who want to help and friends who expect him to help them be wild. It’s about old girlfriends, new girlfriends, parties where you can’t drink, family that wasn’t adequate, and on and on.
And the temptation of real drugs, beyond drink.
It’s odd to realize, but I think the bottom line is that most young people live in a culture that’s on the edge, on purpose and for good reason. And there is a percentage of people who can’t handle that, who need to go over the edge, and will always go over the edge. Some of those people understand it early and save themselves, others never can. And life is a series of crises.
This isn’t a feel good movie about a man who succeeds (I’m not saying here if he succeeds or not—just that it’s not some sunny happiness after a round with the devil). This is about what it might be like to be in the shoes of Anders, or anyone like him, and how almost impossible it is to rise up. And his friends and family are partly to blame, sad to admit.
The final few minutes of the film are poetic—elegiac might be a better word—and the opening to the film is similarly daring and edgy. It’s odd and perhaps too bad the the middle—the bulk of it—is more prosaic. It’s good, it’s really good, but without the poetry we are sure to sink into empathy and sadness, watching what is surely so believable it is, somewhere, all too real.
The Truth —written by someone who has been there
Beautiful and interesting to watch if tragic.
Anders is a heroin addict in the last weeks of rehab–we don’t know how many times he has been there before–one suspects several due to the cold reception he receives from his family. He is in his early 30s.
Having been through this myself I am a pretty good judge of this movie.
It is very accurate. The sister who won’t see him. Her friend who describes how Ander’s mother is trying to give the sister family heirlooms maybe to make up for the money they have had to spend on Anders. The sister doesn’t want Anders in the family home alone–but her friend gives him the keys anyway. So real.
I loved the truth in this movie. Ander’s friend who quotes Proust (a nod to the French origins of the story) and then his wife chastises this pretentiousness perfectly. This friend then admits his life is not so perfect and he really wonders about it–admits he doesn’t sleep with his wife–a wonderful one line antidote the typical PC version of marriages.
Anders state of mind is partly caused by the depressive blahs of withdrawal but also the stripping away of artifice and pretense from the humiliations of years. The exact truth of everything comes out in this state that is the intelligence of the movie. The scene in the cafe is wonderful….especially the puerile teenage girls wanting to do all these prepackaged “exciting” things–swimming with dolphins-reading a great novel you remember parts of all your life…ad nauseum. It exhausts and irritates you listening to it.
Of course I knew Anders was going to OD about 30 minutes from the end that was no surprise. The director does clever things though–you see Anders playing the piano and can’t see his hands so you are dismayed to think this wonderful movie is going use that tired cinema technique of showing only the hands playing but then the camera moves very slowly and no—he really is playing it. That somehow authenticates the movie. This movie works beautifully–the initial drowning attempt then the ending at the swimming pool.
Probably the best and most watchable “addiction” movie I have ever seen. Plus you get to see scenes of Oslo all of it beautifully filmed. As a non sequitur…. WWII started on Sept 1 so August 31 would have been the last day of an era–a unrelated triviality I am positive.
