Jimmie

11 yrs 90 minutes 2018 0.0

After six years of silence, director Jesper Ganslandt (Farwell Falkenberg, The Monkey) is back with a personal film about the refugee crisis. We see a war-torn Sweden through the eyes of a four-year-old child. Jimmie and his father (Jesper Ganslandt himself) must go on a long journey, but Jimmie does not understand why. Questions, border controls and waiting in camps, everything is incomprehensible. The journey goes south, across the Mediterranean in a rubber boat. His mother is gone, but perhaps she's waiting for them when they arrive? The film has divided the critics in two camps - those who think that a blond child should not be required to awaken the Western audience's empathy, and those who think the film is amazing.
