Stine and Teit, along with their son Nemo, trade city life in Copenhagen for a quieter existence in a remote Swedish forest. The move gives them the space and peace to revitalize their relationship, embrace a new way of life, and rediscover themselves as individuals. When Nemo disappears, the peaceful existence comes to an abrupt end. Even after his return, old hurts and hidden desires seep back into their lives, leaving them more confronted than ever with themselves and each other.
Genre: drama, thriller
Language: Danish, subtitles: English
Superposition explores the contemporary human’s longing for an authentic life. This film is not only a mystery-like thriller, it also raises some interesting questions about how your behavior and choices in life affect not only you, but also your partner and vice versa. Would it be possible to become a different version of yourself if you had a (slightly) different partner or lived in different circumstances, away from the busy-ness, distractions, demands and noise of current day life?
No more can be said about the plot without spoiling it, so we won’t! But we can say that this film, because of its beautiful settings and intriguing cinematography, is best experienced on the big screen with sound coming from multiple speakers. How else can you experience the complete isolation that Stine and Teit have chosen for themselves, or feel their inner turmoil when Nemo gets lost?
This film is recommended by the Studium Generale student film committee because: “Superposition is shot deep in the Swedish wilderness, with a gripping and nerve-wracking story, and an ending you can’t quite wrap your head around. A night out in De Zwarte Doos does not get much better than that. This film is sure to stay in your head for days or even weeks!”
Quote from the director:
“We live in a constant state of flux, torn between the desire to self-actualize as individuals and to be loving, attentive parents, friends, and partners. Urban life provides us the opportunities to fulfil our potential and satisfy our immediate desires, but at the same time, causes half of us to experience burnout, depression, and chronic pain, and exposes our children constantly to addictive computer games and harmful ideals presented by social media. Is there an alternative?”
“A sharp, knowing commentary on real-world concerns of individuality, loyalty and trust”. Screen Daily
“Superposition makes a delightful watch for those who like their symmetry strong, while offering more for those who prefer to look beneath its (reflecting) surface”. ICS
