The intro to this movie says “After his wife’s death, offshore oil worker Kjetil is having a hard time relating to his adopted son Daniel. In an act of desperation, he brings Daniel along to Colombia”. Sadly that sums up everything that happens in this 100 minute movie. It is a good premise for a movie, but after a while it gets a bit dull and one dimensional. Right at the end there is a hint of some development, but alas it isn’t developed nor confirmed. Which is just aswell as it is a rather stupid, old fashioned event. In the end one is only put out of ones misery of uneventfulness by the closing credits.
You need to be quite desperate to kill 100 minutes to want to see this movie.
Can affection grow out of nothing?
Handle with care by Norwegian director Arild Andresen has it’s original title Hjertestart, which should translate to “heartstart” or the starting of a heart, which is the far better title of this film, than the international english version title.
Kristoffer Joner plays one of the main roles, as he did in director Andresen’s fabulous The Orheim Company which I rated 9/10. The other is played by young Kristoffer Bech. As father and adoptive son they are a the little remains of a family after the death of their most important family member.
In the role as the father, Kjetil, we meet a troubled man after the loss of his wife. He goes to psychological treatment, where he reveals that he has trouble in finding affection for his adoptive son, Daniel, being adopted by him and the wife Camilla. It’s obvious that his life is on hold, which also affects his small adoptive son, which in his own way misses the mother just as much. They are not able to communicate, and hasn’t been able to talk out the tragedy in their lives. This soon leads to another crises, before he decide to go back to his son’s native country, Colombia, to try to find Daniel’s biological mother in hope of delivering him back!
Joner plays well, as always, being able to portray the mixed emotions the father snows towards his son, as well as his own well being. The film is well acted also by the other main characters, which really all makes this to be a very watchable and heartfelt story. Marlon Moreno does a fabulous role as the Colombian contact which helps out in the detective work in Bogotá. The film has good tension throughout.
This is director Arild Andresen’s third feature movie, after the through out charming The Liverpool Goalie and the profoundly heart breaking and also uplifting The Orheim Company. It’s very clear that Andresen is another Norwegian directorial star. This film he also has been co-writer.
This film bombed at the box office due to lack of marketing, which is really to bad, because it’s well worth a watch!
