A good European date film for all viewers who are interested in love and romance.
Norwegian film "Tatt Av Kvinnen" has been directed by Petter Naess.He is the same filmmaker who made a popular film called Elling.The humor element of this film is different from that of Elling as Tatt Av Kvinnen is not so gloomy in nature as Elling.Gone with the woman is this film's title in English and it is a very apt title as this film's bachelor protagonist is completely dominated by a capricious,young woman.Director Petter Naess has done a good job by adapting Erlend Loe's book "Tatt Av Kvinnen".The highlight of this film is the depiction of some men as timid individuals.This is really different from the portrayal of some women as intuitive beings.Gone with the woman can be enjoyed as a film describing feelings of love in an European society and its implications on ordinary people.Tatt Av Kvinnen has its own share of funny moments which keep viewers glued to the story even though there are moments in this film which suggest that things can often go wrong in a love story.Norwegian actor Trond Fausa Aurvåg is simply brilliant as the guy who is able to tolerate whims and fancies of his partner Marianne.This charming role has been played by cute actress Marian Saastad Ottesen.
