Review of Shame (2015)
Seen in 2017.
Review refers to the first season.
Contemporary Norwegian teenage life.
Drama verging on soap opera. I went into it hoping for a Fucking Åmål (1998), but the subject matter is considerably brighter. Novel production techniques conceal a dearth of realism. Details of relationship drama hold center stage, to the detriment of characterization and friendship, but the craftsmanship is good.
