The Almost Man


80 min minutes

Henrik is a ridiculously awkward Norwegian man who tries to start loud arguments about abortion in the grocery store with his wife for yuks. He and his friends are still drinking and carrying on like they’re in their early twenties, but Henrik is on the downward slope to 40 and starting out at a high-responsibility office job. Can this man-child turn into a man before he ruins everything? The Almost Man is a wince-loaded comedy that in America would’ve starred Will Ferrell and gone for the cheap laughs. Instead, it’s a more meditative piece about someone who doesn’t know how relate to the world without a dirty joke getting in the way. (PAUL CONSTANT)
