Movie Info

On the surface, everything seems perfect. 19-year-old Mirjam is the stepdaughter of the charismatic pastor of an evangelical movement called The Freedom. As a world champion in disco freestyle dancing and leader of the youth group in the congregation, she is the pride of the church. Whilst defending her world title, she collapses on stage. This makes her start to question her faith. Her family's solution is for her to be a better believer. Mirjam tries, but her body continues to fail her. Frustrated by the feeling of not being seen and in search of answers, she is drawn to a stricter, more conservative congregation. Secretly she leaves for their summer camp.

Strange, surprising and increasingly unnerving...

September 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Disco is far too repetitive and its point of view remains as opaque as Mirjam's psychology. It's not enough, always, to merely observe.

the more allegorical the film becomes, the more the viewer is inclined to suspect that Syversen is targeting not just Christianity (in its different forms and factions), but any rigid belief system or community bubble.

Frida uses her physicality to show how uncomfortable Mirjam feels, shifting her limbs and holding herself awkwardly. You can tell she'd do anything to get away from here, but she doesn't know how or what 'away' even means.

It is an anthropological exploration in the midst of a polished and beautifully grounded fiction. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's the empathy Syversen and her lead actress evoke for a free spirit battered into submission that is this tough little film's greatest achievement.
