Winner of international film festival awards from Germany to Korea, Home is an off-beat, tender and humorous perspective of those on the social fringes.
Lou (Moa Gammel) is a super bright woman, but socially awkward – to the point of being neurotic. She’s a woman who speaks her mind, which is not to everyone’s taste and this has resulted in her largely solitary existence. Led to believe that her maternal grandparents are long dead, she is shocked one day when she is told that her grandfather has just passed away and that her grandmother is still alive. This sets her off on a journey to a small village where she gets to know her mischievous grandmother Frida, Tom, a misplaced boy searching for his calling in life and, most importantly, Henrik (an extremely likeable Simon J Berger), who promptly falls head over heels in love with her. Lou’s journey is not to change, but to learn to love and find a home in those that love her.
Through directly expressed humor, comical situations and vivid colours, This story shows an alternative way of dealing with loss, social conventions and love.
