A film that could be called a diary, a notebook or a journal. A collage composed of small daily events, documented spontaneously as they occurred. As the work progresses these individual observations start to interlink in order to create a new kind of mosaic, constructed of images, recollections, voices and sounds. Eventually the film grows into a richly coloured portrait of ongoing everyday life, somehow familiar yet elusive at the same time.
“Johansson’s associations mimic the train of thought, his pictures lack often a clear and logic development. There is no necessary order for each of these scenes, what we would have precisely found in a linear narrative. Obviously, we do not think in a rigorous order either but through modes of montage as Godard had stated :’’Thus, montage concerns the level of thought. And Godard reminds us ‘that cinema [was] first made for thinking,’ that it should first of all be given a ‘form that thinks.’ Montage is the art of producing this form that thinks.’’
