Intense Trailer For Dark Norwegian Drama ALL THAT MATTERS IS PAST

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
A woman wakes next to a river, battered and barely alive, with the bodies of two men prone next to her. So begins the trailer for Sara Johnsen's All That Matters Is Past (Uskyld).

The director of Vinterkyss and Upperdog, Johnsen has a well earned reputation for dark and edgy fare that defies easy categorization. Are they thrillers? Dark character dramas? It doesn't really matter, because what they mostly are is very, very good.

Janne meets William after many years of separation. She leaves her family to live with him in a cabin by the river and they recreate the feeling of love and lust that they had as children, being sweethearts playing in the woods. When a canoeist by coincidence finds Janne in the forest, she is extremely weak and two dead people lie beside her.

Soon to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival the first trailer for Johnsen's latest has arrived and it is powerful stuff. Take a look below.

    "Are they thrillers? Dark character dramas?"

    Very nice trailer....reminds me of the work of Guillermo Arriaga.

    Thanks for the trailer, Mr Brown.
