(aka "Jeg er din" )

 

directed by Iram Haq
Norway 2013

 

Mina (Amrita Acharia, TV's GAME OF THRONES) is a twenty-seven year old struggling actress living in Oslo with her seven year old son Felix (Prince Singh). Her husband (Assad Siddique, IMPORT-EXPORT) left her because of her flirtation with another man, and her traditional Pakistani parents (Rabia Noreen and Sudhir Kumar Kohli) continually press her to agree to an arranged marriage if only to quell down gossip in their community about her promiscuous lifestyle. Mina has been seeing perennially unavailable filmmaker Martin (Trond Fausa, BLOODY ANGELS) - who she knows already has a girlfriend - but she quickly believes she might have found the real thing with Swedish screenwriter Jesper (Ola Rapace, SKYFALL) when he continues to see her after learning that she has a child. Things start to turn sour when she and Felix join him for a few days in Stockholm, as he starts to have misgivings about stepping in as a father figure to Felix (who at seven years of age understandably feels left out and unwanted when they his mother and her "prince" steal some time away together). Mina agrees to some distance, and maintains a relationship with Jesper over the phone and webcam. When the opportunity comes up to visit Jesper again, she leaves Felix with his father outside of their agree schedule. When she realizes that Jesper is incapable of returning her devotion (despite actually believing that he cannot live without her when not otherwise preoccupied), she tries to start things up again with Mark (only to finally realize the same thing about him). Mina returns home but finds herself alienated from her son and outright banned by her family who feel that they have become social outcasts in their community because of her poor decisions. Having neglected her son in her continuing desperate search for love, Mina must make a definitive decision about the direction of her life (and if it involves her son or not).

Comments

Film Movement's progressive, anamorphic transfer seems faithful to the film's soft, low-key look (presumably some of the more minor instances of edge enhancement are part of the original video compression or the master itself). For some reason there are two identical Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo tracks (although there is no set-up menu option, so this may be an error rather than a bonus). The English subtitles are burnt-in, but the font and size are readable without being distracting.

Extras consist of the film's trailer, biographies, other Film Movement trailers, and a short film about a couple's unhappiness from the point of view of an imaginative child. The inside cover has a statement from the director as a well as a paragraph on why Film Movement selected the title.
