O' Horten (2007)

Another great film from Norway. Last years I 've been a fan of Scandinavian films as I think they complete their own style of cinema. This is a sensitive drama where our fellow Mr. Odd O' Horten is ready for his retirement after forty years at the service of national railway as an engineer. His life is going to change more when he realizes that common things and routines also change. He has a lot of strange experiences and meet more weird people around him lately. Sometimes he feels alone and he is thinking of his simple life where everything was tight and peaceful. A real film for the elderly people. Sensitive, bittersweet, poetic, some times mixed with equal parts of black humor and surrealism. A beautiful experience though.
