Hohoho-O'Horten!


After two days away from my computer, too busy celebrating good times with my loved ones (What a wonderful Christmas I had !) I am back to the screen with a film or two for you...I will start with a Norwegian bittersweet comedy. O'Horten, directed by Bent Hamer, is the story of Odd Horten, an engineer who once off his train, is derailed... I highly recommend it to you. I watched it before Christmas and it put a big smile on my face. I tremendously enjoyed the odd story it tells about our human condition... Hope you too will...Let me know.

The soundtrack, composed by Kaada, is also part of the trip

Bonjour Christine!
So glad to hear you had a wonderful Christmas - that makes two of us. I'll check out this film, it sounds interesting.
Wishing you a fabulous 2010!

Christine! I love Bent Hamer -- my husband is of Norwegian heritage, so we normally make a point to see his films, but missed this one.

I highly recommend his previous film, Kitchen Stories. I have it on DVD if you'd like to borrow.

Happy New Year to you and Marco. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

Hello Nadine!
Thank you for the tip. Marco and I are already planning a video night with Kitchen Stories. I'll let you know of our impressions.
