World Panorama section at IFFI brings nuances of film making for audience

Besides entertainment there is also another aspect in watching movies and that is learning the nuances of film making. The World Panorama section at the ongoing IFFI at Goa brings exactly that for the audience. From some of the best shots, to dialogues and direction, the movies screened in this section are more than a classroom lecture on film making not only for aspiring students but for the audience as well.

AIR correspondent reports that the Scandinavian Silence or the Skandinaavia Vaikus as it is originally named is a film directed by Estonian film-maker Martti Helde. The distinctiveness of this movie is that it offers three variations on the same events to the audience with an artfully packaged sibling drama.

The film revolves around the siblings struck by dark secrets in their family and the mystery of it remains unraveled till the end. This eighty minute psychological drama begins with Tom (Reimo Sagor) trudging down the snowy forest road, when his sister Jenna (Rea Lest) drives up to pick him.

The first 30 minutes of the movie has only Tom talking about his family, a feeling of guilt and about the time he spent behind bars. For the next iteration of the story, Helde rewinds to the same staring point, but this time it is Jenna who talks while Tom listens silently.

Even as all the three chapters has a grayscale monochrome imagery for a larger duration with beautiful picturisation through snowy forest and aerial tracking shots, there is a subtle transition to colour image. Laced with soft music in the background, the film is likely to attract niche audience.
