Film description

The director Johan Jonason uses tools one can usually find in a thriller-maker's toolbox. There is a house in the wilderness and two antagonists playing a complex game inside. One of them has become a bloodless torturer over the years and he has massacred his own marriage. The other is a homosexual, masochistically fascinated with a suspicious guru. Jonason observes the two men's psychological wrestling like an entomologist watching actions of insects - in his film, there is no room for melodramatic shivering or simple tricks to build suspense. Suspense can be found only in emotional crevices created by the characters' awkward attempts to discard their social costumes. The title 'guidance' is that true love consists of infringing the other person's integrity. But the border between infatuation and hatred is very thin and the characters who step along it are exceptionally clumsy. After all, searching for revenge may very well include a desire to suffer.
