'Blind' (2014)

Ellen Dorrit Petersen plays the character Ingrid, who has lost her sight, is bored, lonely and stays in her apartment listening to music and writing a playful book. Her thoughts on the other people that live in her apartment block play out on screen and they range from paranoid to sexually charged.

I think this film might be brilliant. It blurs the line between reality and fiction in a well used trope about a writer, but does so in such a clever way that the viewer doesn't really understand how it's all connected until about 50 minutes into the film. Well I didn't anyway.

Director Eskil Vogt (The Innocents) wrote Joachim Trier's Oslo trilogy and 'Blind' was his debut film in 2014. It deserves to be far more widely seen.
