Sofie is an ordinary Norwegian girl. One day she recieves a video tape on which a certain Alberto Knox talks directly to her from ancient Greece. They then start to meet at different occasions and throughout the film, Alberto takes Sofie on an odyssey of the history of philosophy, from ancient Greece, over the Roman empire, the Middle ages, the renaissance, the enlightenment, the big revolutions and up to today. Throughout this journey, they start to realise that they are only fictions of a story writer's imagination and start conceiving a plan for escaping into reality.Written by

A comprehensive novel, and the even more comprehensive history of philosophy, is made into a fabulous film, containing some of the high lights of the European history since Socrates up to the Russian revolution. The script is like a fairy tail; in a simple language Gustavson (the director) presents us to this complexity with divertisement and lightness. Congratulation!
