Wryly poignant tale set in a remote 1950s Norwegian town where a Swedish loner (Tomas Norstrom) is hired to silently observe the movements of a taciturn bachelor (Joachim Calmeyer) in his stark kitchen for a government research study, but gradually the two men enjoy conversing, jeopardizing the project and sparking jealousy in the Norwegian man's resentful friend (Bjorn Floberg). Co-writer and director Bent Hamer's spare script and straightforward visuals capture awkward male friendships while bringing out the characters' humanity with abundant droll humor. Subtitles. An occasional crude expression and fleeting alcohol abuse. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
