Movie Info

Rune Denstad Langlo's Nord marks another addition to the growing body of Northern European comedies with super-offbeat, idiosyncratic tones and understated flyspecks of humor - a subgenre typified by the comedic work of such directors as Bent Hamer, Aki Kaurismaki, and Boris Khlebnikov. Anders Baasmo Christiansen stars as Jomar Henriksen, a onetime skiing pro who bottomed out with a nervous breakdown, and now occupies a low-key job as a ski path patroller. He spends untoward hours bored out of his mind, patrolling vast, snowy wastes - a job which grows so mundane and monotonous that Jomar eventually loses all focus and begins drinking heavily on the job, lazing around, and smoking prodigious quantities of cigarettes. His life takes an unusual turn when an old friend crops up and informs him that he has an estranged son living to the north. Curious, Jomar hits the icy terrain in his snowmobile and embarks on a picaresque series of adventures en route to see his boy.

Audience Reviews for North

  • Aug 11, 2016
    Offbeat dramedy about a former skier who suffers a mental breakdown after being left by his girlfriend, and sets off cross country on a snowmobile to connect with the child he never knew he had, meeting all sorts of interesting characters along the way who help him in his journey. Plays out like a kind of "Fargo" meets "The Straight Story," "North" tends to cut narrative corners whenever it can, but is ultimately oddly endearing.

    A weird road-movie from Norway. The roads are full of snow and the vehicle is a snowmobile. After a nervous breakdown and breaking up with his girlfriend, Jomar isolates himself from everone he knows. Things change when he learns he has a 4 year old son. He decides to go see him, meets some more weird characters on the way and burn a few houses. Decent movie coming from the north.
