Movie Info

FROM THE BALCONY takes you on a journey through one year in the life of Ole and his family, living in Brochmannsgate 12A, Oslo, Norway, Europe, Earth, Universe. What if you would take a break from the rollercoaster called life and just sit and ask yourself: how did I get here? Do you live alone, with a family, or roommates? In a small village on the countryside or maybe in a big, foreign city? Was this the place you were supposed to be by now? And how do you keep going, even if you know that at some point the sun will burn out and everything around you will be gone forever? Ole Giæver takes you through a year of everyday life in Western Europe with all its holidays, memories and fantasies, questions big and small. The moment you see your daughter managing to bike on her own the first time can set a train of thoughts in motion that leads you to a place far far away. An attempt to break with your habit of always drinking boring tea can make you try to drink a raw egg. The home videos from your youth remind you of how you thought you would one day be the new lead singer of A-Ha. And when Christmas comes, we gather the family trying to make new memories using the same old traditions. FROM THE BALCONY is a time capsule filled with all these moments and feelings. It invites you to think about your own life and choices. What does it mean to be human today? And why do we rather want to speak to ourselves on a smartphone than socialize with strangers at a job gathering?
