Sverrir Gudnason och Maria Bonnevie i kraftfullt debutdrama om 14-åring som tvingas bli vuxen alldeles för fort.

Ylva Thedin Bjørkaas gör en urstark filmdebut i rollen som tonårsflickan Jill som är sin mammas förälder. Mamma Astrid (Maria Bonnevie) missbrukar både alkohol och piller, vilket gör karriären som textilkonstnär lidande. Jill städar undan flaskorna och tar hand om sin lillebror. På Jills 14-årsdag, när allt ser som mörkast ut, dyker plötsligt hennes pappa upp. Han är en extravagant och självupptagen jazzfarsa (Sverrir Gudnason). Camilla Strøm Henriksen är själv skådespelare, och hennes regidebut är en mycket välspelad film om familj, ansvar och längtan.

Regissör: Camilla Strøm Henriksen

Before turning to directing, she worked as an actor and has appeared extensively in Norwegian films, TV and theatre productions. She studied at London Film School and graduated with an MA degree in directing in 2004. She has since directed multiple episodes of the longest running series in Scandinavia, [Hotel Caesar], as well as the drama series [Hvaler].

Phoenix is above all about children who take the role of adults. It’s about the conflict between the responsibility they take, and the unanswered needs they have, as children. It’s about the complex dynamics within a family where the roles are reversed: Where the children become the small adults. The subject matter is of great concern to me and why I’ve felt it’s important to make the film. I have had experiences that made me want to tell a story that explores this theme, in a way that felt relevant to others. Growing up, I took the responsibility in my family from an early age. My younger brother and I lived with a mentally unstable mother, whilst our father was absent. My main focus was how to make the family function. [Phoenix] is also about a mother and a father who fail in their parental roles. What mechanisms are triggered in a child when the parents lose the grip on their life? What happens in the relationship between a teenage daughter with the future ahead of her, and a mother who can’t cope with her existence? Who takes the responsibility for this relationship?
