Dublin

Three weeks went by and so far so good.

Since my arrival in Dublin I've got a job at Microsoft and a place to live
in the heart of the city.

I'd say my decision to move here has already paid some dividends.

Let's see what happens next!

Stockholm film - Lappis movie : "The endless dream of a winter night"

Before leaving Stockholm, a few days ago, we had the premiere of the movie we made in the Swedish capital during the season 2009/2010.

You can watch the movie blog here and have a look at many backstage moments and interviews.

Now the question: is this a movie about Stockholm? Is this a movie about Sweden? Or is it just a Lappis film?

And furthermore: what is the meaning of the movie?

I can answer from the perspective of the screenwriter: it is a movie about how a foreigner can feel in Sweden; so it's Stockholm from a foreign perspective, I'd better say from different foreign perspectives.

Why Lappis? Because it is the place where many foreigners live and study.

I don't think it can be called a proper Lappis film, but all those who have lived in Lappis can recognize many things.

Enjoy!
