NORTH Following a nervous breakdown, ski athlete Jomar has isolated himself in a lonely existence as the guard of a ski park. When he learns that he might be the father of a child way up north, he sets on a strange and poetic journey through Norway on a snowmobile, with 5 liters of alcohol as sole provisions. On this trip through amazing arctic landscapes, Jomar seems to do everything in his power to avoid reaching his destination. He meets other tender and confused souls, who will all contribute to push Jomar further along his reluctant journey towards the brighter side of life.Written by

Interesting characters and situations, but not enough
Movies like this are about the journey itself, and not the destination, so I am fine with the plot itself. A man travels and meets people on his way. The meetings in this movie are all quite neat. The main character meets some people that all challenge the isolation he has been living in, and it seems like those he meet influence him as much as he influences them. It's about all the problems we have, big and small.
But there's too little of this. This is not a long movie (less than 90 minutes), but it still felt long due to gaps in the narrative where not much happens. There would have been room for plenty more good moments in this movie, and you feel robbed once it over because they never came, and the great moments that's there just aren't enough.
