She also has a high sensitivity to reality beyond the physical world which proves her high Spiritual Potential.
The antagonist of Elina is her teacher Tora Holm, a conservative and authoritarian administrator.
The main value for her is absolute social power based on what she believes in her rightness.
That principle she spread not only over school children but also to Einar Björk, the new teacher, who sees things differently than she does.
She is also indifferent to their suffering, for example, she deprives Anton and Elina of dinner.
She clearly enjoys her own social power ( the episode of giving or not giving charitable boots to Elina), ignoring the girl’s positive intentions, etc.
All these actions are signs of the presence of heavy brutal energies in her soul and the movement of her soul toward Darkness.
Elina’s and Tora’s battle
Under these circumstances, Tora finally finds herself in a “No Choice” situation and is forced to accept her defeat and subsequent Change.
It would be useful to add visibility to this change in Tora – for example, she changes her red suit for a less authoritarian dress and, for example, shows her sitting at lunch at the same table with schoolchildren.
Unfortunately, the film ends without showing us the inner transformation of the Tora. That would be the most interesting part.
Will she continue her journey into Darkness, hiding her cruelty like a wolf in sheep’s clothing? Or perhaps this unwanted Change gave her a chance to turn to the Light and begin the process of enlightenment? Or maybe she will give up her school career and retire, i.e. will choose the direction of Degradation?
“Elina: As If I Wasn’t There( 2002)” by director: Klaus Härö and scriptwriter Kjell Sundstedt is a fascinating film with spiritual elements and highly recommended to watch by the whole family.
