The Quiet Roar
Marianne is a 68-year-old woman diagnosed with a terminal disease. Left with angst, she seeks therapy at a clinic where she is treated with psilocybin (psychodelic mushrooms) and meditation by a counselor, Eva. Through this she is transferred to her subconscious, where she meets and confronts her 25-year-old self and her former husband.
"There is a well-known notion that memory is the essence of cinema. Indeed, what is photographed becomes the past immediately after it's photographed, and by the time it is projected, it's but a memory revitalized on screen. Henrik Hellström's THE QUIET ROAR (Dragon Award for Best Nordic Film at the Gothenburg Film Festival) is another movie that uses memory as its momentum and backbone, and yet the second-time director/screenwriter's vision is very distinctive."
