Oslo, August 31st (2011)
This film asks a very challenging question: is life after rehab worth living? And the answers are decidedly ambiguous.

A blackly comic vision of a nordic purgatory where no-one really feels love, and hot chocolate has no taste, but all claim to be happy.

Adam's Apples (2005)
Shockingly dark comedy that is ultimately quite moving, handling its simple but powerful theme with a light touch. It is also laugh out loud funny.

Four Shades of Brown (2004)

A bit like Todd Solondz' Happiness, only more ambitious. Jet black comedy that goes into some very dark places but is still surreally funny.

Kitchen Stories (2003)

A really sweet story of the slowly thawing relationship between a Swedish scientific observer, and his cranky old Norwegian subject.

A Somewhat Gentle Man (2010)

Skarsgard underplays for once in this very dry comedy with real sympathy for its almost grotesque characters. Very enjoyable.

The Man Without a Past (2002)

A lovely film about human kindness and the inhumanity of institutions, completely unsentimental and laced with bone-dry Finnish humour. A treat.

Dragonfly (2001)

An excellently tense thriller, full of ambiguity and with top-notch acting, especially from Bodnia.

Nói Albínói (2003)

Bleak tale of teenage alienation in remote town in Iceland, well acted with touches of dark humour. Also a fascinating view of a world I know nothing about. The ending is sort of like the negative of the end of 'Three Colours Red'.  http://youtu.be/nznx9Xk9zJA

Troubled Water (2008)

Harrowing and very moving story of forgiveness and redemption. Excellent photography and unusual direction and editing make this all the more powerful, even if events are a little too neat.
  

  
Terribly Happy (2008)

Kind of a noir League of Gentleman in the Danish bog.

  
Aberdeen (2000)

Lena Headey goes on a road trip to Norway to find her estranged, alcoholic father. Treads a fine line between pitch-black comedy and tragedy.
After the Wedding (2006)

Bier is great at capturing emotions with her swirling, intimate camerawork, although she crossed the line into overwrought slightly towards the end.

Open Hearts (2002)

Somehow the honesty of the characters navigates us through this minefield of a scenario. Great cast, although I found the Dogme style distracting, even though it probably created the conditions for such intimate and honest performances. http://youtu.be/JyFbSMfEOhA
Flickering Lights (2000)

Enjoyable redemption tale with black humour and a sweet heart.

King of Devil's Island (2010)

Strong drama with excellent performances from the young cast and stunning cinematography. It's a tale we've heard before, but here it is told very well, even poetically at times.

Frozen Land (2005)

An interconnected tale of snowballing consequences, well-made but unrelentingly bleak.

Fear Me Not (2008)

Nicely shot and well-acted psycho-drama with a slow-burning tension.

Next Door (2005)

Pretty brutal and ugly psychosexual thriller, lifted by a compelling performance by Joner.
