| subtle drama about the relational confusion of an opera-prompter
This is a story about relational complexities, experienced by Siv, a prompter for the opera AIDA which she is rehearsing. "Complexities", because she is stuck in a web of important changes in her life due to her marriage to a just divorced doctor who shares custody over two kids. She slowly loses grip on the situation, unable to fit into the household that still feels the presence of her husband's ex-wife. An Idyll gets broken and her relation with both mothers and with the new man (a tuba-player for the opera) coming in her life make the confusion complete. She even starts losing the intense passion she found in her work, in music. Her decay is tragically symbolized by the psychosomatic vomiting of which she suffers and by her failure during the performance of the opera. The end of the movie is open, answering "i don't know" on the question of the tuba-player where she will go now. Apparently, she chooses to go with him. Different relational theme's in the story are very recognizable. The subtle role of the opera and the good acting makes this a wonderful psychological drama, in which you experience very closely the feelings of decay, uncertainty, confusion...and finally of "love"?
