About the film
The story that Idiot leads us through and later in which he himself participates more and more – to a bitter sum – is in essence a banal one and can be well understood as a mere record of “Return of the Idiot”. This short time stretch is however bulged with situations that unveil other characters profiles and retains a reality of relationships in the world Idiot faces.
This world is thus of a double form – a realistic one in a psychological revelation of objectively beheld relationships and an introspective one which is stylised and conditioned by Idiot´s point of view.
In this way our story aims to glimpse the world through an Idiot’s eyes and to capture the reality of common explanations and stereotypes that we usually use to measure the world.
In his attitude, in his dreams and his purity Idiot bears a poetic, magic quality, which in connection with the preceding, forms a magi-poetic realism of a sort, a punchy rawness elevated to a metaphor. Our story can thus be read as a realistic narration, and as Idiot´s dream at the same time, a way of returning, of coming back which could only have unraveled in his head.
