Critic Reviews for Phoenix (Føniks)
The first half works better, but as a claustrophobic, psychological study...it's an interesting piece.
Bjørkaas Thedin's debut performance is striking in its restraint, but the film's thriller mode and social commentary B-plot never quite cohere.
Written and directed by the actress Camilla Strom Henriksen, this is, in the tradition of Lukas Moodysson's Lilya 4-ever, quite the downer, but also very vague. And with distracting horror pretensions.
Phoenix has a huge heart, aching for its cast, and while it feels like it's only ever on the verge of getting anywhere, it's still a keen, candid character study.
I found the seductively Scandinavian Instagramable interiors and freakishly good-looking blond leads increasingly distracting.
