Synopsis

Synopsis


After a long absence, famous pianist Zetterstrøm returns from New York to his native Copenhagen on the occasion of a gala concert. A perfectionist by nature, he has one major personal flaw: he has lost the memory of his past. But when he is contacted by a messenger from a mysterious off-limits “zone” in the middle of the city, he connects with what lies behind him, what made him run away: his love for the captivating Andrea. He hopes for the past to come back to him but the “zone” does not sell dreams… it leads him to remembrance of things past.

Press

"Inventive, entertaining and pleasingly bold."

Time Out

"Clever visual touches. Its most intriguing moments evoke the way that memory plays tricks and our visions of the past are actually scrambled composites of impressions and feelings. In “Allegro,” the past is a shadowy night town whose geography is continually rearranging itself."

The New York Times

"Super-stylish."

The Guardian

"Filled with technical virtuosity…remarkably original and reps further evidence of a unique directorial vision…Boe’s Zone reps a rich metaphor for how the lovelorn shun places where traumas happened, while the story’s arc works through intriguing ideas about the solipsism of talent, memory and pain."

Variety

"Incredibly romantic and alluring."

BBC

"Superb, spectacular photography, a night-time film par excellence..."
