Synopsis:

 An out-of-nowhere critical hit at the Berlin Film Festival 2014, this remarkably nuanced and funny Norwegian comedy explores the inner life of a young woman who has recently lost her sight.

Confined to her home, Ingrid is at once comforted by the presence of her loving husband and thrown into turmoil at the imagined possibilities of the invisible world around her. With unsentimental wit and imaginative visual panache, Vogt's film is an adroit portrayal of a woman adapting to a very specific condition, as well as a refreshingly inventive exploration of female sexuality and fantasy.

Critical reaction:
  • Vogt gives us a brilliantly slippery handle on the rules of this rather twisted game, but also makes it real, in that it's coming from a place of authentic terror, anxiety and loneliness in Ingrid's head.
