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.

Anders Baasmo Christiansen,
insisting voice over that philosophies about life with banal conclusions
Why? Why was this made? Its a weird one this. No clear narrative, no structure. The only thing that ties the film together is Ole Gievers banal and insisting voice-over that continues throughout the film. This is not a film. Its an essay accompanied by random photos. Half the film could have been a slightly interesting essay on life (although Gievers conclusion on life and its meaning is utter banal). The other half looks like a badly made TV documentary from the 80s.
Why does he keep getting funds to make movies? He has no cinematic skills. I always leave his films wondering why they where made. Because most of them would work better as a text. There are many visual talents in Norway. Give them a chance. And give this guy a pen and a publisher.
