"Tangible, somewhat understated and remarkably good...", 27 February 2013
Author: Sindre Kaspersen from Norway

Norwegian author, screenwriter and director Dag Johan Haugerud's feature film debut which he wrote, premiered in Norway, was screened at the 36th Gothenburg International Film Festival in 2013, was shot on locations in Oslo, Norway and is a Norwegian production which was produced by Norwegian producer Yngve Sæther. It tells the story about a writer named Eva Cecilie who is doing an audio-book recording of a book she has written about a nurse named Lise Gundersen who agrees to tutor a student named Siri, a translator named Grete Maigret who is about to meet a new editor named Anne and an international aid development worker named Ann-Kristin who is on her way with her mother Inger to meet her aunt named Astrid and her cousin named Vibeke.

Finely and precisely directed by Norwegian filmmaker Dag Johan Haugerud, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated by Norwegian actress Andrine Sæther and from multiple viewpoints, draws an incisive portrayal of a married woman who get's into a conflict with an apprentice, a single woman who has strong and somewhat personal opinions about the novels she reads and translates and a pregnant woman who is looking out for her mother. While notable for its naturalistic and mostly interior milieu depictions, fine production design by production designer Tuva Hølmebakk and cinematography by cinematographer Kim Hiorthøy, this dialog-driven and literary story depicts some empathic studies of character and contains a great instrumental score.

This quick-witted, conversational and very humorous drama about how people perceive one another and how this effects their communication, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, subtle character development, interrelated stories, interesting conversations, incorporation of literature in cinema and the commendable acting performances by Norwegian actresses Laila Goody, Ragnhild Hilt, Andrea Bræin Hovig, Henriette Steenstrup, Anne Marit Jacobsen, Ane Dahl Torp and Kari Onstad Winge. A tangible, somewhat understated and remarkably good character-piece where the three main characters in the narrator's book "When you least expect it" may or may not represent significant parts of the storyteller's personality.
