Movie Info

A case of food poisoning derails a family's holiday and forever alters the course of their lives. Years later, the couple go camping again, looking for one last chance to go back to the way things used to be. But what once was is lost, and they instead find themselves having to relive the same nightmarish events, as that day and the horrors it brings repeat themselves infinitely. Together, they must overcome their trauma, reconcile with the past and fight for their lives -- over and over again.

Critic Reviews for Koko-di Koko-da

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (49) | Rotten (12)

  • It's metaphorical, vague but also precise in its specificity for the horrific trials these people are to face - their personal hell.

  • Nyholm shrewdly avoids providing concrete answers about the nature of this time-loop scenario, instead plunging deeper and deeper into recurring panoramas of suffering and hopelessness...

    November 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • [An] entire exercise in arty scab-picking.

    November 6, 2020 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Though at times tasteless and barely coherent, the story is oddly affecting, the very strangeness of Nyholm's folkloric vision and its unnerving execution pulling you in.

    November 5, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Koko-di Koko-da takes a stab at creating a twisted modern fairy tale about grief, but detracts from that side of the story with crude humor that doesn't land.

    March 19, 2021 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • Writer-director Johannes Nyholm focuses his energy on setting the tone and mood that highlights the couple's despair and forces us as the audience to try to solve the riddle he lays out.

Audience Reviews for Koko-di Koko-da

  • Apr 08, 2021
    An old-school Swedish grief-parable and pretty baleful. I'm not sure I'd recommend it; it's not as clever or emotionally moving as it thinks it is but it is grim. Couple grieving for their dead child are subjected to a cycle of weird torments by a group of surrealist fairy-tale psychopaths in a wood. It's not as horrible as 'Funny Games' or 'Antichrist' by far but it shares a similar dreary, circular ambience. Cool shadow-puppet sequence in the middle. Cw for several dead dogs.

    This is what David Lynch's nightmares must be like -- a groundhog day of despair and depravity. There is one scene -- only one freaking scene -- that is absolutely gripping and terrifying to anybody that has had a child. And the rest is just art-for-for art's sake with little effort to connect the dots.
