Life in a Fishbowl by Len Vlahos

Fifteen-year-old Jackie Stone is a prisoner in her own house. Everything she says and does 24/7 is being taped and broadcast to every television in America. Why? Because her dad is dying of a brain tumor and he has auctioned his life on eBay to the highest bidder: a ruthless TV reality show executive at ATN.

Gone is her moms attention and cooking and parent-teacher conferences. Gone is her sisters trust ever since shes been dazzled by the cameras and new-found infamy. Gone is her privacy. Gone is the whole familys dignity as ATN twists their words and makes a public mockery of their lives on Life and Death. But most of all, Jackie fears that one day very soon her father will just be . . . gone. Armed only with her ingenuity and the power of the internet, Jackie is determined to end the show and reclaim all of their lives, even in death.

Eik, who is a young mother and nursery school teacher, moonlights as a hooker in order to support herself and her daughter. She has to struggle to make ends meet because she is utterly estranged from her extremely well-to-do family. Gradually, he becomes entangled in a world of corruption and moral complacency and bit by bit he starts to lead a double life. Presented in competition yesterday at the Brussels Film Festival, Life in a Fishbowl establishes its director, Baldvin Z, as a sure asset for the Icelandic film industry. With a top-notch line-up stocked with six titles that were unveiled at Cannes, among others, the Budapest-based company harbours a great deal of ambition as it looks to the future.

Three tales of three people who have a lasting effect on one another. A young writer whose career is skyrocketing finds himself in a stormy marriage. He divorces his wife after the death of their daughter, shuts himself from the outside world and drinks himself to death over a twenty-year period. Review by V. People bumping into each other like in a fishbowl. Very Nordic atmosphere. The film has more character; its acting is pretty much top-notch and it's easy to see that these actors and actresses could be something great.

When we talk about the economic crash of to , it's often suggested that it stemmed from a cultural problem. But did that problem stop at the banks? Iceland was hit early, hit hard. This Icelandic drama is set during that critical period and looks at a broader culture of secrecy. It also explores the way the burdens of the past can impact on the present, suggesting that we need to look a long way back as we try to change the way our society works and reduce the risk of things going wrong on that scale again.
