The Traveler

In this terminally boring 2005 video a young Swede just finishing his MBA refuses to take his girlfriend on his summer trip. In a Berlin youth hostel he meets people from other countries, goes to discos, gets drunk, and struggles to become a writer. When his new friends leave he calls his girlfriend but gets only her message machine. He breaks down crying—but why would we care? The emotions and experiences are generic and trite, and director William Olsson's camera, staring stupidly at his characters' faces, shows all the insight of live television. In English and subtitled Norwegian and Swedish.
