★ ★ ★ ★ Wonderful Review from Sylva Film Critic When you see dozens of movies a week like I do, it becomes difficult over time to see the difference among them all. Every now and then, though, there's that one film that stands apart and rises above all the others. That film, for me, is Everlasting. More... http://thesylvamoviecritic.com/
First American review of Bakerman. http://10kbullets.com/reviews/b/bakerman/ Theatrical Release Date: Denmark, 2017 Production Company: Last Exit Productions Approximate running time: 83 minutes Aspect Ratio: 1.78:1 Anamorphic Widescreen Language: Danish / English / Turkish with English Subtitles Director: David Noel Bourke Writer: David Noel Bourke Cinematographers: Rasmus Leo Hansen, Nikolaj Lindblad Composers: Anders Søndergaard Dahl, Tsvetan Nastev Cast: Mikkel Vadsholt, Brian Hjulmann, Siir Tilif, Mia Lerdam, Kira Nielsen,Hanna Elisa O. Arge, Pejman Khorsand-Jamal Synopsis: A middle age loner named Jens who has spent his life avoiding conflict is forced out of his comfort zone. Bakerman is the third feature film from David Noel Bourke who previous films include, Last Exit and No Right Turn. Bakerman originally began as another much more ambitious project titled White Pig. Bakerman is a well-constructed psychological drama that features a fragile protagonist who by the end the film grows substantially. The film features a meticulously laid out narrative that is reinforced by a well-defined protagonist. Pacing is never an issue as key moments are given an ample amount of time to fully resonate. Another strength of this film’s narrative are the calm moments of reflection between and after the violent outbursts. Thematically this film deals with themes that anyone can universally connect with. Thus, making this film’s moment of truth all the more portent. From a production stand point, there are no area’s where this film is lacking. The direction is rock solid and then it comes to the visuals they do a superb job maintaining the mood. And not to be overlooked is Mikkel Vadsholt’s remarkable performance in the role of this film’s protagonist Jen’s.
