With short FLUFFY TALES
On the surface, Jöns Jönsson’s AXIOM seems straightforward enough—a portrait of Julius, a charismatic young museum attendant; he is self-assured, assertive, moving through his life relatively unchallenged and with no small amount of charm. But it soon becomes clear that Julius is rather more vulnerable than we first realized, and this plays out with something approaching amorality. Perhaps more accurately, it becomes increasingly difficult to locate his position on the moral spectrum.
It doesn’t take long to understand that we’re in the hands of a master storyteller. AXIOM reveals a deep complexity over its leisurely runtime, mischievously toying with our callow expectations, built on rather unstable foundations
