The Bothersome Man

Presented as part of The Scandinavian Library’s Nordic Film Series, The Bothersome Man shares the story of Andreas arriving in a strange city with no memory of how he got there. He is presented with a job and an apartment, but before long, he 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. 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? Directed by Jens Lien. 90 minutes. In Norwegian with English subtitles. 2007
