Sisters Ines and Emilie could not be more different. Ines is confident and from an early age has set off on her own path to build a career as a photographer in New York. Emilie is introverted and stayed at home to take care of their sick mother. When the mother dies, Emilie asks Ines to go on a mysterious journey. It is only when they reach their destination, a sun-drenched guesthouse in the middle of a remote forest opening, that Ines discovers why Emily has brought her to exactly this place. Director Lisa Langseth’s first English language production is an atmospheric and deeply emotional film full of unexpected surprises. Brilliantly interpreted by Alicia Vikander and Eva Green, EUPHORIA is a beautifully polished meditation on family, life and transience.

Lisa Langseth did something courageous. Young women die of cancer, all the time, so many of them. We possibly do not care enough about that. We do not ask, why are so many young women dying of such diseases and is there a chance for change? But that is just the prelude. The movie is about a beautiful woman Emilie (Eva Green) who decides to end her life because everything has failed and she faces death and wants to go on her own terms. She gets her sister Ines (Alicia Vikander) to accompany her to a peculiar place where people get a death cocktail and pass away in a few minutes (possibly a euphemism that should have been avoided) without much suffering. People also are encouraged to spend their last days in ways that make the film somewhat surrealistic. But at least Emilie saves a desperate - now disabled - football player's life. And both sisters find some relief in facing a few dark sides of their family history. This movie is pioneer work. It can be criticized, there could have been improvements, but pioneers are never perfect. The movie is an invitation to face the inevitable howsoever much we would like to avoid dealing with it.
