Synopsis

"It's not important what's real as long as I can visualize it," notes the narrator heroine early on in Blind, aptly setting the stage for a lithe, quicksilver portrait of a woman whose loss of sight only serves to sharpen her creative imagination. Blindness is a difficult affliction to understand. By simply closing your eyes and walking around, you might comprehend the act of not being able to see, but you would probably be unable to grasp the loneliness and isolation that occurs when the world is permanently cast into darkness. Eskil Vogt, whose debut feature this is, has provided viewers with a thorough exploration of Ingrid (played by Ellen Dorrit Petersen)and the ailment that confines her to her apartment. His character study is immensely thoughtful, and it allows the viewer to immerse oneself in Ingrid’s version of reality.

Critics

open_quote Petersen, a classic Nordic beauty with alabaster cheekbones and narrow, piercing eyes, is brilliant at showing how Ingrid's blindness affects every inch of her being - how she moves, writes, dreams, and how she feels about herself as a woman. close_quote Variety
