Storyline

From their booth, two sports announcers, Thomas and Rune, take us to the bedroom of Stian, on Park Street in Olso, where the big question is, can Stian rouse himself from sleep and get to work on time. Thomas and Rune recap the week: it's Thursday, and Stian has been late three days' running. He may lose his job if he doesn't get there on time today. The alarm sounds at 7 a.m., and the fate of Norway and of Norse identity may hang in the balance. Snooze buttons, instant replay, the lure of Morpheus, flights of stairs, an impatient boss, and false hopes take us right down to the buzzer. Can Stian do it? Highlights and a wrap-up interview end the broadcast. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A comedic gem
12 October 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The following may contain ***SPOILERS.*** I watched this short the other night on Australia's SBS "shorts on screen" and was very pleasantly surprised (being only newly a watcher of short film... and I must say that this one has encouraged me to give more of them a chance). The wonderful universal humour in this film came from the familiarity both of the experience of the effort it can sometimes take to get out of bed and out of the house in time in the mornings melded beautifully with the familiar format of sports commentary and spectatorship. The craftsmanship from concept to delivery was, I thought, superb. I laughed out loud more times within this 10 minute short than I have in any full length movie I have viewed for quite some time.
