Three young female cancer patients find solace in friendship and sisterhood when they are hospitalized at the same time between Christmas and New Year’s in director Christian E. Christiansen’s 2007 Danish-language Oscar-nominated short film.
Best known as the keyboardist for the Danish band Cryoshell, composer Mikkel Maltha brings an unusual level of musical maturity to an otherwise brief narrative, employing solo piano, synthesizer and, in at least two instances, pop and pop-rock arrangements to highlight the many emotional ups and downs the women experience in each other’s company. A gentle and sweetly introspective accompaniment to a simple and confined yet deeply humanistic effort. Noteworthy tracks include “Natpotten Peger På,” Busstoppestedet” and “Han Sørger.”
