Nothing's All Bad (2010)

Directed by: Mikkel Munch-Fals
Country: Denmark

Plot: Four people struggle with their sexual needs and their desire to be loved.
Review: First feature film from Mikkel Munch-Fals, wasn't so satisfying as expected. Adopting the typical despair and grief from Scandinavian dramas, focuses on different characters who are trying to cope with loneliness, sexual misfit and extreme psychological pain. The fear of not being accepted as they really are, associated with the idea that there’s always someone for you (no matter what problem you might have), is played here as a major key, but the movie happens to be too dense and cold to be fully enjoyed. Not a cheerful choice.
Relevant awards: New voices/visions grand jury prize (Palm Springs).
