Andreas arrives in a strange city with no memory of how he got there. He is presented with a job, an apartment and a beautiful girlfriend, 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. He makes an attempt to escape from the city, but he discovers there is no way out, and even several attempts to kill himself prove unsuccessful. Andreas meets a man who has found a crack in a wall in his cellar. Beautiful music streams out from the crack, but from where? Is it the way out?

I thought of this movie as a Norwegian Twilight Zone and quite entertaining. The main actor, Aurvag, Trond Fausa, won a Best Actor Award for his performance in this movie, which is equivalent to the Oscars in America. This movie will leave you saying, "whoa, what was that about?", but I do think it's one that will be liked by anyone who is a Twilight Zone fan. I enjoyed it!

Very existential movie about life after death, Norwegian society, and a man who doesn't fit in well with either of them. A bit gruesome in spots. But also very funny in spots, too. I highly recommend this movie if you're looking for something completely different. Nothing's nicely explained or wrapped up. Try not to figure it out in terms of "what you know to be real." Most of the folks I know who have seen this usually have a "what the heck was that all about" reaction after watching it and that's actually a good thing, IMHO. Trond Aurvåg is good as the confused, unhappy lead character (he's probably most/more famous for his work on the TV series Lilyhammer).
