Storyline

Reidar is a resident at Solihøgda psychiatric institution. He is expecting the Earth to be hit by a huge meteor any time now, but until then he is busy trying to keep his fellow patient, Juni, from killing herself. And it doesn't happen often. But maybe one is allowed to hope. That when the quarks in the ball are correctly aligned with the quarks in the wall that you throw it at, there won't be a collision. But a moment of harmony when everything is balanced. And that moment could be now. Written by Signy

One of the best norwegian movies ever.
27 January 2003 | by (Stavanger, Norway) – See all my reviews

"Himmelfall" is one of the best norwegian movies ever. While some is of the opinion that "Pathfinder" is the best norwegian flick ever others argue that "Elling" is the best. In my opinion this is the best yet due to excellent actors, good balance between comedy and drama and a very reasonable pace to the storytelleing. The main character is played by Kristoffer Joner and he does his best job as an actor ever. He is very believeable as Reidar, a paranoid psychiatric patient convinced that the earth is in danger of total anhilation at any moment due to a meteor strike. The female lead, played by Marie Bonnevie, is the suicidal Juni who hide a dark past.

The movie is instantly funny while never forgetting to maintain the dramatic undertones. As with "Elling" I will not be surprised to see a "Hollywood" remake of this fantastic piece of entertainment... Recommended.
