Director: Kristoffer Borgli

95 mins, Norway-Sweden, 2022, Digital, Subtitled

On the surface, Signe (Kristine Kujath Thorp) and Thomas (Eirik Sæther) appear to be a model couple; attractive, successful, and well-liked, she works in a coffee shop while he is an artist. They are, however, in an unhealthy, competitive relationship, rife with petty one-upmanship, lies, and theft – the film opens with them scamming a posh restaurant out of their most expensive wine, before fleeing the scene of the crime. The couple’s toxic co-dependency takes a turn for the vicious when Thomas unexpectedly breaks through as a contemporary artist (working in the medium of stolen furniture); incensed by her partner’s newfound fame, the ever-jealous and insecure Signe hatches a chilling and grotesque plot to regain dominance.

By turns hilarious and horrifying, Kristoffer Borgli’s pitch-black comedy invites us to observe just how far Signe will go to be the centre of attention.

There will be Open Captioned screenings at 13.20 on Saturday 22nd and 20.40 on Wednesday 26th.
