Lars Noren depicts the scenery at the end of a war, without specifying the time or place, making echoes of remote wars heard, but also the echoes of the recently concluded ones, or of the ones happening right next to us.

The characters constantly waver between two worlds: the real ones, where poverty and the despair to survive generates lack of compassion even towards members of the same family, and the imagined one, conceived as a refuge only filled with joy and prosperity. Semira, the 12-year-old girl, objectifies this fantastic world of happiness through the image of the Disneyland entertainment park, realm of fairytales, of princesses and of glittering castles. ”Who wants us ?”- a question like an echo in this text and a desperate scream which is now heard from the ones risking their lives to escape war.

 

„End of war scenery.

The First World War, the Second World War, Algeria, Vietnam, Rwanda, Bosnia, Chechnya, Iraq, Syria…

How is the return to the normality of life still possible, after its destruction has been attempted? Can the traumas left behind by fear, humiliation, hatred, the perpetual presence of death be healed, in order to live as before? How can the hope for the future be regained?

Who would want us? - a question like an echo in this text and a desperate scream which is now heard from the ones risking their lives to escape war.” Lorena Zabrautanu
