While he tries to grab the man and hold on, he knocks an oar into the sea. The boys are unable to lift the man into the boat, and without two oars, can't head to shore. Will rescue come?

Blodsøstre / Blood sisters. 2006.

"Blood Sisters", Danish filmmaker Louise Friedberg's sophomore short film, is the kind of flick that you simply can't take your eyes off of. It's a relatively simple story that has been played out time and time again: a young girl feels threatened by her best friend's new friend/neighbour, jealousy brews, and tempers flare.
A slow but steady pace brings to mind late 20th century minimalist music, creeping along with perseverance and contemplative awe. The aura is distinctly Scandinavian: simultaneously chilly and warm, dominated by icy whites, whimsical laces and the splash of blood red. But what makes Friedberg's film resonate so loudly is how straight she plays archetype. There is no homage, no winking at the audience. Just bravura filmmaking that pulses with beauty, tension and breathtaking performances.
Director: Louise Friedberg.

La bouche de Jean-Pierre. 1996.

DESPITE its weighty mood, "La Bouche de Jean-Pierre" manages to avoid any notable insights into its serious subject matter. Mimi, a young French girl, is in the aftershock of her mother's attempted suicide. No father is in the picture. She suffers neglect when she goes to live with her Aunt Solange in a highrise ghetto, and sleazy advances from her Aunt's boyfriend, Jean-Pierre. Added to these themes of depression, physical and sexual abuse, are those of pornography, racism, and the perversity of a pill-pushing society. With weak dialogue and a lack of clear direction, none of these themes are developed, let alone given an interesting or sensitive spin. The dull quality of acting barely inspires the sympathy for Mimi that might have rendered the end poignant if predictable.

3. Blodsøstre / Blood Sisters.
"Blood Sisters", Danish filmmaker Louise Friedberg's sophomore short film, is the kind of flick that you simply can't take your eyes off of. It's a relatively simple story that has been played out time and time again: a young girl feels threatened by her best friend's new friend/neighbour, jealousy brews, and tempers flare. A slow but steady pace brings to mind late 20th century minimalist music, creeping along with perseverance and contemplative awe. The aura is distinctly Scandinavian: simultaneously chilly and warm, dominated by icy whites, whimsical laces and the splash of blood red. But what makes Friedberg's film resonate so loudly is how straight she plays archetype. There is no homage, no winking at the audience. Just bravura filmmaking that pulses with beauty, tension and breathtaking performances.
Director: Louise Friedberg.
Cast: Malou Z. Bruun, Angela Bundalovic, Liv Corfixen.
