Dimwitted, somewhat misanthropic Oslo mail carrier Roy's quiet life changes dramatically on the day he steals a set of keys and lets himself into the apartment of a deaf woman who seems to be in trouble with a psychotic criminal.

A combination black comedy and thriller, the film presents a view of the seedy side of Oslo that is seldom seen by tourists. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Budbringeren (Junk Mail)
Strong black comedy from Norway about disillusioned, slacker mailman
What sets "Junk Mail" apart from most American comedies is how much of it takes place in silence, as Roy finds himself in slapstick situations reminiscent of Rowan Atkinson's "Mr. Bean."
Audience Reviews for Budbringeren (Junk Mail)
This is critically acclaimed Norwegian film paints a horribly depressing image of urban Oslo as we follow a lonely postman on his daily routine of work and snooping around in the lives of his costumers. The events resulting from that are as sad as funny and definitely pull you into the film quickly as things get worse and worse from Roy entering the life of a woman as she is trying to commit suicide. While the solution to all the mess that is caused is not entirely as satisfying as the way there, the movie is still worth watching, if you enjoy those kinda films. It's real, gritty, not pretty but pretty amusing.More
