Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Déjà vu

Published: Thursday 2007-01-04.

I started the film year on New Year’s Day by going to Déjà vu while my girlfriend went to some kind of romantic comedy that was shown at the same time. I saw a trailer for the film last time I went to the cinema and thought it seemed to be an appropriate waste of time, and I was right.

The film is set in New Orleans after the devastation inflicted by Katrina, where a ferry is blown up in an act of terror. Agent Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) starts investigating the crime and is contacted by an FBI agent (Val Kilmer) who explains that they have got their hands on new technology that makes it possible to, in real-time, look 4½ days back in tame. But is it more than just a way to look back in time?

Not the best film ever made, but if you like simple science fiction-y entertainment it can be worth watching. I don’t really like the concept of time travel in films, but here they manage to get away with it without it feeling strange. I’m not likely to buy the film on DVD though, even if I am a bit curious about a couple of details from the beginning of the film, after having seen the end of it, but I’ll just wait with checking them until it gets aired on TV.
