Synopsis:

German businessman Carsten Neuer travels to Norway to finish the impossible translation of some Norwegian poems by Tarjei Vesaas into Chinese, a project of his late wife. He hires Niko, a down-on-his-luck tour guide, to drive him to the poet’s home and places of inspiration to stimulate his own translation. On the road, the ghost of Carsten’s wife appears to him, while Niko struggles with the sudden consequences of his girlfriend’s pregnancy. On this journey, two very different men come to realize the transforming power of love, the limits of language, and the human need for friendship.

The infinite play of word & image

August 3, 2018
How does the heart reveal the heart? In words? Better, the dissolving of word in image as the image itself dissolves. Henri Bergson says we must wait for the sugar to dissolve. We live in a world that has its own rhythms: some incrementally slow, some subliminally fast. We wait, we run. Don Quixote goes to Telemark Norway to complete his dead wife’s translation of Tarjei Vesaas, hoping for a last caress from a ghost as she caresses her own ghost lover. What touches? What is touched? Everything is changed.
