10 Years of Discovering the Best Documentaries for You



Vesterbro

DIR: Michael Noer
2008 / Denmark / 78 min

Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

When Noer gave a digital video camera to his 20-year-old neighbours, simply briefing them to film the dramatic events of their daily lives, he hardly imagined what he had set in motion. Like many their age, Julie and Martin are impulsive, wild, and constantly on the lookout for stimulation. The camera acts as a faithful companion through their constant ups and downs. 'Vesterbro' is their story, and exactly because it is seen through their eyes and subsequently told through Michael Noer's filmic interpretation, it goes straight to the bone of the transition from youth to adulthood with a rarely seen degree of honesty, intimacy and accuracy.
