Movie Info

A struggling independent filmmaker desperate to salvage his failing marriage becomes dangerously obsessed with documenting his relationship in director Christoffer Boe's harrowing glimpse into one man's dark mental descent. Nicolas Bro (Nicolas Bro) is an actor who uses his handheld camera as a means of making the outside world a more tolerable place. When his best friend Christoffer (director Boe) suggests that Nicolas film every aspect of his life as a means of breaking his stifling inhibitions, Nicolas determines to capture a real life love story on camera as he attempts to win back his wife Lene. Though initially an amusing distraction, Nicolas growing penchant for filming the most intimate aspects of his personal life finds him becoming increasingly distanced from the real-world repercussions of his actions. Now, as Nicolas reverts ever deeper into the stories of his past and eschews the outside world in favor of documenting every minute detail of his life, his loose grip on reality begins to slip with frightening consequences. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Despite escalating lunacy, result still feels like an empty aesthetic exercise or filmmaking in-joke.

[Director] Boe and co-writer Knud Romer Jorgensen move what could have been a self-indulgent mess unpredictably as their star continues to lose his grasp on reality and find a way to make a satisfying story.

The film's final scenes show in what genre you might end up if you start relying too much on a film to sort out your life. Hint: it is not pretty to look at.
