O'Horten a film
James and I watched this "funky" film the other evening. It is Norweigan, has subtitles, however, with limited dialogue, one need not worry about missing anything. Very low-key, with some really interesting overhead shots of a train traveling over a very snowy area. Also, some very quick humorous street scenes. O'Horten is retiring, after 40 years being a train engineer, he is having a hard time coming to terms with his new life. We enjoyed this one due to the lack of conversation, Europeans know how to tell a story on film just using visual effects. Hope you give it a shot.
