Den Brysomme Mannen aka The Bothersome Man (2006)

“A delightfully droll… black comedy”. Well, actually I didn’t laugh, but well, there was a few funny scenes. But still, it’s kind of creepy and weirdo. Hey! What the heck, I’m a weirdo too, a freak with some twisted tastes, so kind of like creepy movies! And this film won 20 awards and had 4 other  nominations, so… Written by Per Schreiner and directed by Jens Lien, the story presents forty-year-old Andreas as arrives as the only passenger in a  bus in a strange city where he is aspected and even welcomed. He’s got an apartment, clothes,  a job, and he got even a girl-friend. But Andreas realize that something is wrong, everything seems some kind of fake. Makes an attempt to escape the city, but he discovers there’s no way out. He tried to harm him self, but that attempts also failed. Finally he met another person who seems to share his worries and who has found a crack in a wall in his cellar, a possible connection to “another world”.

I wont destroy the pleasure to watch this movie by telling you the whole story. I’m just curious what I understand and what I miss from this movie. I think Andreas was dead and he ended up in Heaven – or Hell. I can make up my mind in wich one. If you saw the movie or you will see it, I’m really interested what’s your opinion about it…
