VIFF: Hotell

I am currently going through depression, so it was an eye opening experience to see this film about a woman dealing with trauma alongside a motley crew of other depressed folks by going from hotel to hotel and escaping their real lives in order to cope. Hotell is an offering from Sweden, and features powerful performances from all of the actors.

It's an interesting concept that this group has adopted, with one member even commenting on the obvious : Isn't this just repressing things? Things come culminate for our main character as she finally faces her fears, but not before she helps everyone else face their demons. 

HOTELL is playing TODAY at 1:30pm at the Vancouver Playhouse!
