Movie Info

Henrik is 35, but he still parties with his high-school buddies like they were in they're 20s. His mother cares for him like he's still a child. And he's in a relationship that's based on goofing around. Now, his girlfriend Tone is pregnant and Henrik has taken a serious job, moved into a prefab duplex, and he's trying to calm down the partying and start behaving like a father-to-be. But as he feels the pressure to mature, and to do it quickly, Henrik's frustrations surface in unforeseen-and outrageously inappropriate-ways. (C) Big World Pictures

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

My problem, finally, and this is something I rarely actually complain about, was that I didn't care.

August 1, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"The Almost Man" may be slight, but how many films can pack equal amounts of emotional nuance and inappropriately sprayed urine into just 75 minutes?

July 31, 2014 | Full Review…

A slender but polished dramedy.

Top Critic

While the movie's theme is familiar, even a little stale, the vivid details help to freshen the story, and the actors sock the movie home. Rafaelsen gives a marvelously subtle performance.

July 30, 2014 | Full Review…

Too slight to register as anything more than a stunted-adolescent trifle.

July 29, 2014 | Full Review…

An engaging character study that effectively skirts the fine line between comedy and tragedy, but the ending feels rather glib.
