Erik Løchen should have been an international success
21 September 2015 | by Bifrost_NORSee all my reviews

Erik Løchen made two films, the first one being Jakten (1959), the other one called Motforestilling (1971) they are both probably the best films to ever come out of Norway.

Jakten is half Jules and Jim (1962) and half Rules of the game (1939) Two men are "Fighting" over the same girl just like in Jules and Jim, and there is constant symbolism throughout the film about this all being a game, like Rules of the game.

The film takes place during the hunting season in Norway, and is jam packed with symbolism about the two men fighting for the girl are like the two dogs they are using to hunt.

Supriseingly is the imagery very good and the locations are marvelous.

If Erik Løchen had made more films it would might have been the Norwegian new wave (since it holds a lot of similarities with The French new wave starting about the same time) This is definitely the best place to start exploring Norwegian cinema and it might be the best Norwegian film ever made.
