Is it a nightmare, or is it real?
20 March 2002 | by kkrogstadSee all my reviews

PLOT: Bjørn and Knut are two good friends. Together with Knut, Bjørn and his wife Guri goes for a trip in the Norwegian mountains to hunt. Knut has been in love with Guri since he first met her many years ago, but it was Bjørn who finally married her. In the mountains, the situation gets dramatic, when Knut tries to tell her how he feels about her.

The way the film is made is very unconvential. The actors talk directly to the viewer, and the narrator ask them questions about what they are thinking. With this metode we learn what they all think about each other. The film builds up to a climax, with a nice twist in the end.
