Movie Info

As their high school graduation draws near and they attempt to figure out their future paths in life, a group of lifelong friends ponder the stagnant pace of life in a hometown that offers no hope for a bright future. Jesper (Jesper Ganslandt), David (David Johnson), John (John Axel Eriksson), and John's brother Holger (Holger Eriksson) all grew up in a geriatric-dominated town where the biggest event of the week is drive-in bingo night. In a town where leaving is considered a betrayal but to stay is to resign oneself to a life of limitless boredom and endless repetition, these friends must make a choice between settling for a placid life of comforting familiarity, or striking out to see just what kind of prospects the outside world really holds. Shot largely improvised over the course of a single summer and with non-professional actors, director Jesper Gansladt's introspective drama focuses on the internal conflict faced by many people who struggle with the decision of leaving their familiar surroundings in search of a better life. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Falkenberg Farewell (Farval Falkenberg)

All Critics (1)

A freewheeling dive into the hermetically sealed world of all-male friendships that, though the film's storytelling technique is quite impressionistic by way of Gus Van Sant, feels natural and true.
