On the way back from a night out, Eli insists on taking Ella home. What follows is a long midnight conversation and the beginning of a story that will change their lives…
The first film that Rodrigo Sorogoyen made alone and his first collaboration with Isabel Peña, Stockholm is a project where the aesthetic is driven by sparsity: two actors, three places and a 13-day shoot. Produced by Caballo Films, the company he had recently founded with a couple of partners, and supported by a crowdfunding campaign, the film met with great success in festivals, particularly in Spain where it was nominated for 3 Goyas. It is already possible to see Sorogoyen's taste for turning situations upside down (a scene where one character is chatting up another soon becomes harassment) and his talent in directing actors. The film was not released in France, but Stockholm remains Rodrigo Sorogoyen's opening statement as a filmmaker.
