Blind is a 2014 Norwegian drama film written and directed by Eskil Vogt. The film premiered in-competition in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at 2014 Sundance Film Festival on 19 January 2014.[1] Vogt received the Screenwriting Award for Blind at Sundance.[2][3] The film was later screened in the Panorama section of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival[4] and was nominated for the 2014 Nordic Council Film Prize.[5]



Blind received positive reviews upon its premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports a 92% positive score based on 37 reviews, with an average rating of 7.55/10.[6] It also has a score of 83/100 on Metacritic based on 14 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[7]

Scott Foundas of Variety, said in his review that "Ace Norwegian scribe Eskil Vogt makes a sparkling directorial debut with an alternately tragic and playful tale of a blind authoress."[8] Boyd van Hoeij in his review for The Hollywood Reporter called the film "An ambitiously constructed screenplay translates into a film that's easier to admire than to love."[9] William Bibbiani from CraveOnline praised the film by saying that "Blind exists as a nebulous construction, ever shifting but ultimately centered around a lovely and funny love-quadrangle with curious characters and consistent insight. The film's curious blend of the sensual and the cerebral manages to engage even when you begin to lack confidence about whether anything is actually happening at all."[10]


Blind won the Screenwriting Award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
