A brilliant documentary about body and identity.
Norway has only a few filmmakers of international quality. Meaning: They are able to project their stories onto the big screen, in such a way that you know it couldn‚Äôt have been done much better anywhere else in the world. At least if such a statement can be based on some years of participating in film festivals in Norway and abroad. Margreth Olin is one of these.
This documentary is called ‚ÄúMy Body‚Äù. She literally strips naked in front of the camera, wanting to tell the story of being her self. Today, a grown woman with obviously exceptional resources. But what and whom shaped the woman she has become, her identity and how she sees herself? Yes, this could easily have become mushy. Confessional literature‚Äôs huge weakness is that if one is not interested in the confessor or her story, it collapses completely. This is by no means the case here.
