„Elsewhere“ tells a story of a woman who travels to places from her past, remembering and trying to let go of a past love that ended. On reaching her destination, a lake, the woman sees a deer, with which she has some connection. This film stands out through its deeply affecting atmosphere and intense quality of remembering. „Elsewhere“ is a love story, inspired by films such as Michel Gondry’s “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, where the main character keeps returning to the same places to not to loose memories; which creates contrast with ‘Elsewhere’s theme of wanting to let go.
