Synopsis by Connor McMadden
"You can never leave your past behind you" is the theme of Dragonflies, a Norwegian-Swedish co-produced psychodrama. Eddie and Maria are a pair of lovers looking to start their lives anew after serving time in prison. Despite the difficulties ahead of them, they're managing well until the arrival of Kullman, Eddie's former cohort and cellmate. An aggressive personality, Kullman moves in all his belongings and declares he's there to stay. And while he claims he's out to reform himself, he drops hints that a crime is brewing at the back of his mind, with a role reserved for his old pal Eddie. Often intense, the film showcases the talents of two rising stars, director Marius Holst and actor Marie Bonnevie.
