Hallvar Witzø's "Tuba Atlantic" initially received an Academy Award nomination for Best Live Action Short Film, but the nomination got rescinded when it came out that the movie originally aired on TV. Nevertheless, this story of reconciliation is worth seeing, as the elderly protagonist seeks to make amends with his estranged brother, through the help of an "angel of death". I haven't seen many Norwegian movies, but I've liked the ones that I've seen. "Tuba Atlantic" is one of the most interesting short films that I've seen. It's not a masterpiece, but worth seeing.

So the next time that you hear a noise coming from across the ocean, you know what it means.
