Some New Trailer For O' Horten
New Review For Movie O' HortenIt's a film whose pleasures come slowly, as we, like the title character, discover the joys he's missed. Best of all, we, like Odd the Norwegian bachelor, figure out it is never too late to start living.
Roger Moore-Orlando Sentinel
Hamer creates a quirky, beguiling, and very funny mood piece that reflects on age, adventure, uncertainty, and humanity. Owe gives the character of Horten an off-center dignity that will suggest comparisons to Jacques Tati and Buster Keaton
Jonathan F. Richards-Film.com
The whimsy is never overplayed. The peculiar isn't teased at any character's expense.
Lisa Kennedy-Denver Post
This yarn about a train conductor whose life goes off track is Nordic to its bones: efficient, humane and droll in small measures.
Joe Williams-St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Thanks to the consistent deadpan tone that Hamer and Owe establish, it's oddly satisfying.
John Hartl-Seattle Times
Pointedly strange and whimsical, O'Horten mixes the surreal with the mundane in its depiction of the retirement and eventual rebirth of a train engineer.
Tom Long-Detroit News
It entertains from start to finish and tells a story that is not just fun but in its inimitably gentle way has something to teach us all as well.
Mike Edwards-What Culture
If you can settle into [Baard Owe's] playful deadpan rhythms, a bittersweetly funny, existential mystery -- or call it a modest adventure, if that's not too oxymoronic -- awaits.
O'Horten won't be for everyone, but if you enjoy character-driven films that also treat the landscape as a character, this one has a certain charm and appeal.
James Plath-Movie Metropolis
O' Horten moves slowly, sometimes excruciatingly so, but its thematic center is strong: How do you run out the clock of life?
Justin Strout-Orlando Weekly
...a fable that relies less on fantastical transport than the defrosting of cool faculties; less on the titillation of the senses than the thawing of frozen hearts.
Philip Martin-Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
The decidedly Nordic -- though not at all glacial -- O'Horten is a mixture of sweetness and deadpan that proves the Kaurismäki/Andersson school of filmmaking still has new delights in store.
Boyd van Hoeij-european-films.net
As an old man, Horten is a rare movie hero, but the director reminds us that other things are more ancient; in one scene, Horten hefts a meteorite that predates the sun, and in another scene, Strindberg is quoted: 'In due time, even the stars must fall.'
John Beifuss-Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
It's not conventional at all.
Jeff Vice-Deseret News, Salt Lake City
A spare and perfectly droll kinda-sorta comedy.
Marc Savlov-Austin Chronicle
Episodic ... (but) reflective of life and the fluidity with which it passes.
Sean O'Connell-Charlotte Weekly
This unremarkable fellow finds himself in some strange circumstances, thanks to the imagination of writer/director Bent Hamer.
Robert W. Butler-Kansas City Star
Director Bent Hamer keeps things drily amusing throughout.
Quiet and lovely, its subtle pleasures reminded me of Erik Satie's 'Gymnopedie.'
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)-St. Paul Pioneer Press

Movie Overview For O' HortenOdd Horton is dependable and contained: he's a train engineer retiring after 40 years of service, living a simple life. His idea of adventure is to fly from one city in Norway to another. Starting on the night of his retirement dinner, Odd has a series of dislocating experiences: a boy insists that Odd sit by his bedside while he falls asleep; misadventure causes Odd to miss his last run; he witnesses an arrest; he assists an old man and makes a friend; he takes a trip with a blindfolded driver; he adopts a dog; he takes stock late one night at the roundhouse; he revisits his mother's disappointment in him. How should he live the rest of his life?
