A journey inside Martin's head. He's on a weekend mountain trip, and we get to know his thoughts. Unsensored, essential, existential and silly about feelings and fantasies. A recognizable film about being human, and how we tick and think.
The bride finds a baby on the toilet floor in the hotel. 16 years later the girl turns upon her doorstep, in need to find her biological parents. A funny, touching story about how sex, lies and biology created a beautiful flower, Rosemari.

Fusi, a 43 year old man, still lives with his mother. His daily life is characterized by monotonous routine. The appearance of vibrant Sjöfn and young neighbour Hera will upset his old bachelor habits.
Depiction of middle-age and first-world anxieties. Martin is clearly out of place both in his office, and at home with his wife and son. As he embarks on a trek searching for solace in the stunning Norwegian wilderness, he can't seem to find peace: his incessant stream of thoughts are endlessly commenting and fantasising about disturbing what ifs: what if he got a divorce? What if his wife died? What if he were a cripple? As the day stretches on, Martin prepares for a drastic change of pace amidst the wildlife in what is both a considered and consistently humorous portrayal of how easy it is to feel alienated in a very stable life.
a large slice of every day reality. simple. honest. maybe, courageous. because it is a film like a mirror. reflecting middle age crisis. defining the life as a large circle of doubts. exploring rules and social expectations and the idea of new beginning in life, the lost of youth, the responsibilities as head of family, the pressure of need to be free, to have time for yourself, to escape from different forms of hypocrisy, to be happy, real happy, to have the innocence and the clear purposes of the first ages. Martin is portrait of many viewers. profound different viewers. and this did "Mot naturen" a masterpiece. because, different by many films, it did not gives a story. but reminds yours story. with precision and realism and out of any mask. proposing an answer. in many cases - the only who works.
