    A quirky Norwegian film in the vein of such films as Being John Malkovich. Our protagonist Andreas is dropped into the middle of a desert at the start of the film, brought into the city, given a desk job, and in a way, a spouse. Everyone but him seems disconnected from their feelings, and he has the temerity to fall in love, attempt suicide, and later try to dig a hole through the somewhere that smells and sounds good. It's a weird and at times funny parable about the artist or passionate man butting heads with the mainstream, a vast sea of essentially joyless people who are content to live boring lives in loveless relationships, pragmatic rather than romantic. At least, that's what I got out of it. Trond Fausa AurvÄg is an excellent everyman in this and you feel every absurd moment with him, but it is a pretty bleak film despite its humor. I also like the sonority of Norwegian, not a language I'm used to, and that's probably a reason to like the film only for a language lover like me. 5 years 7 months ago
