Country: Sweden; Effed Up European Cinema
Language: Swedish (Eng Subs); Effed Up Scandinavian Movies
Runtime: 01:32:19
Genres: Includes Animation, Family, Domestic Abuse, Bleak and Depressing

Plot – Spoilers:
In the middle of bleak Swedish nowhere, Eini lives with her father, forcibly cut off from any human contact. Father has strict rules and often physically punishes her whenever she earns the stripes. Various animation techniques are employed to tell stories of how father and she got to the people they are today.

Most of Eini’s life up until now seem to have been days on loop. But things are changing. She’s hitting puberty and recently stumbled upon a radio. As the days and weeks pass, they no longer seem on loop anymore, with subtle changes coloring the dissimilarities. He too is noticing the changes and senses the slow loss of control, while also feeling his age and her lurking desire to be free of him.

This is one of those slow drips that can be rewarding to those who enjoy the style. It’s also quite convincing in driving home the pathos of what would otherwise be normal shit in regular people’s lives, like during Eini’s chance encounter with a radio for the first time.

The casting was absolutely perfect. I hated the father at first sight, played by Lennart Jähkel and Blanca Engström is the only one that could have done the role of Eini. It’s slow and depressing and the animation is great. It may not be for everyone but I loved it. 5 stars. Bravo!

The way this girl treats her father is inexcusable, and the poor man is constantly forced to discipline her when he should be enjoying his late-middle-age life. But kudos to her for setting all the villages on fire. That makes up for the burdens and suffering she inflicts upon her father. Too bad we didn’t get to see people getting burned to death, but oh well, no film is perfect.

GPT Review:

As an artificial intelligence language model, I do not have personal opinions or emotions. However, I can provide information about the film “Granny’s Dancing on the Table.”

“Granny’s Dancing on the Table” is a 2015 Swedish film directed by Hanna Sköld. It tells the story of a young girl named Eini who lives in a remote forest with her abusive father and dreams of a different life. The film is visually striking and uses a unique blend of live-action and animation to tell its story.

The film has received positive reviews from many critics, who have praised its powerful message and unique visual style. It has also won several awards, including the Best Feature Film award at the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, California.

Overall, “Granny’s Dancing on the Table” is a thought-provoking and visually inventive film that explores important themes like abuse, trauma, and the power of imagination.


I did wonder if she showed her bum in …Overboard.. and GPT is a lot easier to ask than doing the google search with its endless false leads.

…The identity of the body double who was used for Goldie Hawn’s bottom in the film “Overboard” has not been publicly disclosed. It’s not uncommon for body doubles or stand-ins to remain anonymous or for their identities to be kept confidential in order to respect their privacy. Additionally, the use of body doubles is a common practice in the film industry, so it’s unlikely that the identity of the individual in question would have been widely publicized…
