Storyline

Martin is going on a blinddate and in his internal government the ministers are preparing for a routine State visit. But then Nora is revealed and tactics need to be changed. Fast! Nora is not interested in foreign political smalltalk, she is after government secrets. The ridiculed Home Secretary is slowly coming to life, but in his way stands a paranoid Defense Secretary. Only a coup can save Martin now! Written by Mike Patton <film@start.no>

Sheer brilliance!
27 June 2002 | by Renaldo MatlinSee all my reviews

Roughly translated the title means "The Martin Government". It's one of the six final "exam films" to come out of the 2002-class at the Norwegian Film School at Lillehammer. I had the pleasure of seeing them all at a formal screening in Oslo today. Now amazingly they were ALL good, and wisely they finished the three hour short-film-marathon with "Regjeringen Martin", the mother to top them all!

Directed by Roar Uthaug this is a fantastic mix between first-rate cinematic style, great comedy, impressive scenery, brilliant writing by Thomas Torjussen, and to top it all of: a group of actors in great form. Especially Kjærand Moe as the Home Secretary, Stig Henrik Hoff as the Foreign Secretary and last but not least an over-the-top Per Egil Aske as the Defense Minister. Something tells me this film will do great on the international short film-circuit. Amazingly it wasn't found good enough to compete at the Norwegian Short Film Festival in Grimstad!!!! But that says a whole lot more about that festival than it does about the brilliant "Regjeringen Martin"!

Who knows, maybe it will even be up for an Academy Award Nomination?! One could hope :)

If you get the chance, see "Regjeringen Martin" no matter what. You will NEVER regret it!
