A Chamber Play
The psychoanalyst Helena receives a new patient, Alice. But the story Alice is telling gets uncomfortably close to Helena's own life. A Chamber Play is a tale of possessive love and psychological manipulation. A bergmanesque drama taking the form of a suspense thriller, the film balances on the fine line between the tragical and the comical. The script (by writer-director-editor-composer Viktor Granö) was one of the winners in the Kortfilm 2018 competition, arranged by the Finnish Film Foundation, Yle and Svenska kulturfonden.
Viktor Granö (b. 1985) worked as a film critic, essayist and radio documentarist, mainly for the Finnish Broadcasting Company, after his studies in philosophy and literature. In 2017, he founded the production company Ljud och bild, and made his debut as a film maker with the essay film The Theseus Complex (2018). A Chamber Play is his first fictional film.
