The loss of a father and the need to believe
4 September 2020 | by OJTSee all my reviews

The Comet - Kometen - is a small well made gem of a movie with basis in the Norwegian Film Scholl Academy. The movie has well known actors in most roles, which are all doing a great job. Main character is a young man, Gustav, well played by Axel Bøyum, who is searching for his father which mysteriously disappeared at the same time as a comet was passing Earth, 10 years ago. This has obviously affected his life immensely, and so much that he uses all his time dealing with UFO's and such, when he's not running the small family hotel together with his mum.

The script by Torben Bech is well written, both in dialogue as well in pace, and the directing by Bård Røssevold is quite flawless, and as such very promising.

The story has a nice and eerie feel, which makes up for both tension and excitement. Did the father just leave them, or did he disappear with a UFO? Well, find out for yourself. If you liked this, I also recommend another movie with a similar feel; Orange Girl from 2009, originally named Appelsinpiken.
