THE BOTHERSOME MAN is a fantastic fable, a parable for modern society’s consumerism and obsession with appearances. Director Jens Lien plays skilfully with the spectator, entertaining him with stunning discoveries, abstruse dialogues and a strong shot of young Nordic humor.

    • Synopsis
    • Forty-year-old Andreas arrives in a strange city with no memory of how he got there. He is presented with a job, an apartment – even a wife. But before long, Andreas notices that something is wrong. The people around him seem cut off from any real emotion, and communicate only in superficialities. The ominous ‘Caretakers’, who make sure the city runs smoothly, keep an increasing watch over Andreas as they find he doesn’t fit in. Andreas makes an attempt to escape the city, but he discovers there’s no way out. Andreas meets Hugo, who has the same longings as himself. Hugo has found a crack in a wall in his cellar. Beautiful music streams out from the crack. Maybe it leads to ‘the other side’? A new plan for escape is hatched.
