Program Note

The creative couple Stine and Teit and their young son Nemo leave their urban life in Copenhagen behind in favour of an isolated forest in Sweden, where they hope to find themselves as individuals while documenting their new lifestyle in an ongoing podcast series. Regretfully, they realise there is another couple across the lake, which is surprisingly alike themselves. Soon, old grudges and selfish desires begin to take over, forcing them to confront their own egos.

Program Note

After leaving behind their city life in Copenhagen, the couple Stine and Teit, along with their son Nemo, migrate to a secluded Swedish countryside village to focus on writing novels and producing podcasts. Their peaceful creative life in the countryside, where it feels like only the three of them exist, begins to crack when another identical couple emerges from across the lake. As tension mounts, Stine and Teit’s forgotten past resurfaces. Karoline Lyngbye’s feature debut, Superposition, showcases a fresh approach to the frequently used theme of doppelgängers in genre films. The mirror image of another couple that Stine and Teit experience is not just a supernatural source of horror or a manifestation of unconscious desires, but rather a visual and psychological anatomy of their own identities and the intimate relationship of marriage. The meticulously crafted images captured on camera, seemingly reflect the film’s psychology, along with the restrained yet powerful performances of the actors, which also stand out. (Jin PARK)
