Eat Sleep Die

eatsleepdieTwentysomething RaŇ°a (Nermina Luka√ß) lives in a small town in southern Sweden where she packs bags of salad for supermarkets, and takes care of her ailing dad (Milan DragiŇ°ic)‚Ķ but then she loses her job.¬†The director’s first film also became a breakthrough for her and Luka√ß who had never appeared in a movie. There are plenty of other amateurs in the cast, but that‚Äôs often barely noticeable, which is a great credit to Gabriela Pichler’s directing skills. Luka√ß is the heart of this funny and warm film, a realistic portrayal of how hard it is to lose a much-needed job and trying to find a new one. Very honest ‚Äď but also a lot more inspiring than it might sound on paper.

2012-Sweden. 100 min. Color.¬†Produced by¬†China √Öhlander.¬†Written and directed by¬†Gabriela Pichler.¬†Cast:¬†Nermina Luka√ß (RaŇ°a), Milan DragiŇ°ic (Dad), Jonathan Lampinen (Nicki), Peter F√§lt, RuŇĺica Pichler.

Trivia:¬†Original title: √Ąta sova d√∂. RuŇĺica Pichler is the director’s mother.

Last word:¬†“I wanted to tell the story about the people I always loved, but was ashamed to be a part of. I wanted to make Rasa a ‘Rocky Balboa’-kind-of-character in Swedish countryside. Not fighting in the ring, but against unemployment and society’s bureaucracy.” (Pichler, IndieWire)
