Phoenix (Føniks) (2018)
Critic Reviews for Phoenix (Føniks)
Written and directed by the actress Camilla Strom Henriksen, this is, in the tradition of Lukas Moodysson's Lilya 4-ever, quite the downer, but also very vague. And with distracting horror pretensions.
I found the seductively Scandinavian Instagramable interiors and freakishly good-looking blond leads increasingly distracting.
Phoenix is shot in dark, restrained tones. It's unremittingly grim for the first half hour in its observation of the details of Jill's life.
This is definitely a film to see at the cinema and if we want more interesting and complex stories such as this then we must show it by bums on seats.
The first half works better, but as a claustrophobic, psychological study...it's an interesting piece.
