Christoffer Boe / DK, 2003
Danish-Swedish version / translated into English, 89 min
The whole thing is a film, the whole thing is unreal, but it still hurts. These are the opening lines of the story of young Alex, whose life is changed by a chance encounter with Aimee. Suddenly, nothing is the way it used to be. He comes home and everything starts to change, both on the outside and on the inside. His apartment disappears, his friends don’t recognize him – he is becoming a man without a past. To get his future back, he must bet everything on love. The film’s original dream-like atmosphere and experimental cinematography got the world thinking Denmark may have more to offer than Lars Von Trier.
