DISASTER MOVIE / 105 MIN

In 1904 an earthquake of magnitude 5.4 on the Richter scale shook Oslo. The earthquake had its epicenter in the "Oslo Graben" which runs under the Norwegian capital. There are still smaller earthquakes happening in this area today. Geologists can not be sure, but there are signs that indicate that we can expect a major future earthquake in Oslo. When it comes - nobody can say with certainty. Maybe in 100 years, maybe in 10 years, maybe tomorrow.

On his quest for happiness, Per decides to leave Jutland and an upbringing in a strict religious home. He runs from his family and his patriarch father and sets sail towards Copenhagen to become an engineer. Parallel to his studies, he works on a visionary energy project based on wind and wave energy, a project so much ahead of its time, that professors consider him insane and far too self-confident.

DRAMA

It is time to sweep off the dust of everyday life. A Norwegian philosopher argues man is born with a blood alcohol level that is 0.5 ‰ too low. Inspired by that theory Martin and three of his friends and high school teachers launch a drinking experiment. Their mundane existence is an endless row of trivialities so this project might be exactly what they need. It is all about living life to the fullest! If Churchill won WW2 in a heavy daze of alcohol, imagine how the powerful drops can affect the daily humdrum? 

NEWS FROM THE FESTIVAL

CINEMA SCOPE REVIEWS 'BEFORE THE FROST'

17. Sep 2018 / Michael Sicinski

The latest from Michael Noer (Papillon) exists just on the right side of the dividing line between stodgy and well-appointed; in fact, it is so classically constructed in terms of plot and character organization that I was surprised to learn that it is based on an original screenplay (by Noer and Jesper Fink) and not adapted from a 19th-century Danish novel. One reason for this relative authenticity is that Before the Frost makes no ingratiating concessions to the contemporary viewer in...
