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>

Absolutely freakin' brilliant!!
30 January 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one terrific little film--one of the best modern shorts I've ever seen!! You MUST see it and it is available to watch online at Atom Films.

This Norwegian gem is a very strange comedy that is also quite Surreal! The movie begins with a guy asleep in bed as you hear two announcers talking as if it's a big game about to start. Then, when his alarm rings, the camera pans back and see that these two color commentators are actually in the guy's bedroom--inside a little booth like the ones you'd see at a football (soccer) match!! As the poor guy is lying there, the two color men just talk and talk as if they are broadcasting the game of the week---complete with instant replays, crowd noise and all the excitement! While this may sound very dull and mundane, don't believe it. This is exceptionally well conceived, exciting and clever. It's just too bad this isn't seen widely, as it's just wonderful and I can't say enough good about it or the folks that made it. A definite must-see for fans of short films!!! See this film--NOW!
