Snårigt äktenskapsdrama vecklas ut till tät psykologisk mardröm med Tarkovskij-vibbar i Gabriel Tzafkas imponerande debut.

Det nygifta paret Lisa och Jacob lämnar stan för att tillbringa sin smekmånad på den danska landsbygden. Kort efter att de anlänt till gården tappar Lisa bort sin vigselring, medan de letar stöter Jacob på ett äldre par som varnar honom för farorna i skogen. Det som börjar som ett kärvt äktenskapsdrama vecklas snart ut till en komplex psykologisk mardrömsväv som i några få scener skildrar ett helt liv av vittrande kärlek, som med magiskt berättande fångar decennier i ett ögonblick. Gabriel Tzafkas dansk-grekiska debut rör sig i gränslandet mellan Andrej Tarkovskijs visuella berättande och Simon Stahos värkande relationsdramer med löfte om ett spännande regissörskap.

In a linear narration “Thorn” could be told as a story of a young couple who after few years loses the freshness and the power of the emotions and forget what they really wanted when they were young. However, they get the unique opportunity to forgive each other. To me, this is already by itself a moving, powerful and universal story. But I was looking for something more. Under the influence of nostalgia for my home, I began to think over parallel lives and parallel worlds. I am myself existing in Greece and in Denmark at the same time. I pondered on the concept and sensation of time through this way. What is reality? What is true to us: our present actions or our past memories? What happens to people who feel that they sacrificed their lives for a purpose, who still believe that they could have a different life, who live more in their memories than in their present actions? Do we have fear or faith? These are some of the thoughts that are the spine of “Thorn”. My goal is to emphasise the small moments through minimal aesthetic, few shots and natural light. The challenge for me is to bring out and to visualise what is happening in the souls of our characters. That’s why, we chose the forest as the main set of this story; it’s a primitive and organic continuity of our characters’ internal world.
