The Gullspång Miracle

The Gullspång Miracle

26th TIDF: Greek Premiere
In this prime recording sample of a reality transcending even the wildest of imaginations, a seemingly metaphysical intervention (or a power from above) leads two religious sisters of a senior age to buy an apartment in a small town in Sweden's inland. On the day of the contract signing, they encounter the proprietress. To their surprise, she looks identical (and even shares the same nickname) to their older sister who committed suicide 30 years earlier... Through a complex narration that begins with a feelgood vibe only to evolve into a character study, one surprise conceals another in its entrails – similarly to a Russian doll – until finally the intricate (and acclaimed) editing unveils the mysterious, tragic, and comedic element hiding behind each family story.
