O'Horten DVD - 2009 | Norwegian

This movie is so understated, that I'm not at all sure it even qualifies as a comedy. One feels that it must be a statement about the Norwegian national characteristics, but most of us will feel somewhat left out of the joke. The lead character is amazingly opaque, and what motivates him is left pretty much unexplained. Also, be aware that the pacing is SLOOOOWWWW. However, there are some lovely images, if little plot, and no drama. In short, "Do I dare to eat a peach"? is not a particularly riveting spectacle to watch.
