Out of Nature (2014)

Mot naturen (original title)
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.

Storyline

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.

Middle-age crisis
2 May 2016 | by attiliomarchiSee all my reviews

You can find a lot of summary of the film, so I would like to write my opinions of the film. I've just watched it at the Film Festival of Trento (02/05/2016) I think that the film is absolutely true! I would like to know where and how Ole Giaever has got inspiration for it because this is a real situation. Changement is part of our life and when we get older we think back to our decisions and choices. It's not easy to get along well with our husband or our wife for ever. It's not easy to grow up children because we have always to sacrifice a part of our life to concentrate our efforts to someone else who need of our help to live. Our life change, our priorities changes and one morning we wake up with a doubt and this doubt generate other doubts and other thoughts and so on. When we are young we see the world with other eyes, we have another perspective we are more instinctive. We think that life is easy, it's easy to get married, it's easy to nurture a kid. Because our upbringing, our community has teaches us that success in our life is having a stable job, having a good education, rising a family, being a good husband a good dad... This is a straight path, easy because everything is defined, clear but often we don't take the time to ask ourselves: "Is this my way? Do I have different opinion? Can I choose a different framework?"
