guidance

the first film from johan jonason (not jens jonssen who made the king of ping pong). it tells a vaguely von trier like story of a failing marriage which the wife tries to save by sending off her lazy second husband on some weird sort of alternative therapy course in nature with a guy who is still in thrall of his guru. with hilarious consequences. not really actually, but nevertheless a good movie. all the actors are believable and real. jonason talked afterwards about how he represents actors as they really are not in roles he ascribes to them and i guess this comes across. stylistically it is interesting, using a lot of very closeup shots on faces.
jonason is one to watch!
