Movie Info

"You can never leave your past behind you" is the theme of Dragonflies, a Norwegian-Swedish co-produced psychodrama. Eddie and Maria are a pair of lovers looking to start their lives anew after serving time in prison. Despite the difficulties ahead of them, they're managing well until the arrival of Kullman, Eddie's former cohort and cellmate. An aggressive personality, Kullman moves in all his belongings and declares he's there to stay. And while he claims he's out to reform himself, he drops hints that a crime is brewing at the back of his mind, with a role reserved for his old pal Eddie. Often intense, the film showcases the talents of two rising stars, director Marius Holst and actor Marie Bonnevie. ~ Connor McMadden, Rovi

All Critics (4)

Weighted like a Terrence Malick film (or like Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock) by the ominous, oppressive indifference of the Natural.

Audience Reviews for Øyenstikker (Dragonflies) (Dragonfly)


[img]http://www.vhcorner.com/movies/images/def/dragonflies.jpg[/img] Another movie that I took nice little naps through but did try to watch the entire thing. I think the main problem in this movie was I fell asleep during important parts. It is a Norwegian film where a 25-year-old women is recently married to a 40-year-old looking guy. They live off in the country to get away from the city. They are happy. Then the guy runs into an old pal that just got out of prison. He invites him over for dinner and he seems to just stay after that. There is some dark secret past between the two guys, but I fell asleep when they were about to talk about it. gah! I think even if I did know about it, I wasn't thrilled about the movie. All the characters seemed quite annoying.
