Someone Like You

Nanna Frank Møller, Denmark, 2007

60 min.DK/Documentary

On a thin tightrope, high up under the canvas of a circus tent, Ayin dances gracefully like a character from a fairytale. Her sister Sky waits in the wings, ready to perform a poetic rope dance. This is the 216th performance of the show and the very last. After years of artistic collaboration and intertwined personal lives, a small circus troupe have reached the end of the line. Both physically and mentally all members are exhausted, and the ensuing rehearsal process is subsequently splintered by a painful tug between the friction of their personal lives and a tremulous fear of the impending separation. This particularly affects the two sisters Ayin and Sky, who find themselves venting their demons. Inseparable, after finding solace in each other in the turbulent years of their childhood, they are like fragile figurines in the final throes of rehearsals. A moving and stylistically precise investigation of the power of love and its possibilities.
