'Three Miles North of Molkom' a colourful documentary

Directors: Robert Cannan/Corinna McFarlane

Cert: 15

The place of the title is set in a Swedish forest where each year there is a get-together of Sharing Groups, all enticed to this adult playground to find themselves and the meaning of life.

In an off-beat documentary we are introduced to a decidedly mixed bag of odd-balls, all seeking something that makes sense of who they are and why they are.

Our stay with them is both entertaining and fascinating … it’s a colourful, character-rich look at the fringes of society, told with heart and understanding.

Star Rating: 4/5
