The Ape

The director of Falkenberg Farewell (2006) returned with another unconventional but stark experience. We follow a desperate man (Olle Sarri) who’s been involved in some kind of blood-soaked event; he’s taking responsibility for it, and his behavior becomes increasingly irrational, but that’s all we know. Not even Sarri knew anything about the story; Jesper Ganslandt shot it chronologically and told his star where to go and what to do. He gives a very strong performance, and this is a chilling, interesting experiment… but shutting us out from what Krister knows and have experienced makes it hard for us to feel anything.

2009-Sweden. 81 min. Color. Written and directed by Jesper Ganslandt. Cast: Olle Sarri (Krister), François Joyce (The Mother), Niclas Gillis (Jonas), Sean Pietrulewicz.

Trivia: Original title: Apan.
