Cornelis

Film stills

Mirė be priežasties, gyveno be tikslo, be dvasios.

Cornelis is an intimate film about Cornelis Vreeswijk, one of Sweden’s greatest artists, about the country he lived in, the time he lived in. It is a naked, rough, melancholy and beautiful film about a man who was everybody’s friend, but nobody’s confidante. Our very personal portrait of the cardigan clad rebel.
 
“It appeals to me in other films as well, this lone man against the world. And I find him actually so. He had many acquaintances, but I do not think it was someone who really knew him, under the skin. I think he wanted it that way, to talk through music or poetry”, says director Amir Chamdin.

Festivals: 

The Guldbagge Award – nominated for Best Supporting Actor.
