Vintersaga Carl Olsson

Vintersaga is a captivating glimpse into the lives of Swedes as they face a harsh winter. With impeccable technique and a keen sense of pace, the film basks in the incongruity of these tableaux, each scene a miniature theatre of human comedy. Through perfectly balanced editing, the filmmaker uses small gestures and snippets of conversation to draw us into the worlds of these individuals—with all their hopes, daily worries, and existential wonderings. With elegance and brio, Carl Olsson crafts a touching sociological analysis, celebrating human warmth behind the gentle melancholy of winter. (MB)
