| The dying meeting her young self
The Quiet Roar is a Swedish-Norwegian-German drama is the second feature by Henrik Hellström (after his debut man tänker sitt" ("Burrowing") where we meet the cancer- dying Marianne, played brilliantly by Evabritt Strandberg, about to receive a highly experimental treatment for her illness-following anxiety - a mushroom trip. Hanna Shygulla plays the nurse Eva.

Marianne, is a 68-year old Swedish woman who is diagnosed with a terminal cancer, with only three months to live. Left with angst, she seeks therapy at a private clinic where she is treated with Psilocybin, which is the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, as well as being succumbed to meditation by her counselor, Eva. Through this treatment she is transported to her subconsciousness.

The film has an interesting premise, and is beautifully told with sharp gripping footage. This is amongst the best parts of the movie. The film acts on a meditative state. The life how it turned out was nothing like she thought while young.

The film is a quiet roar, as the title implements. Nothing shocking here. But a undeniably trace of Bergman in both the acting and the storytelling. Quite impressive, but still definitely not for everyone.

The finishing song, "Pandoras ask" by Kjell Höglund is a fantastic ending credit song of a movie like this. Search it up on youtube!
