An intriguing and bone-dry Norwegian black comedy, The Bothersome Man marks the intersection between David Lynch, Samuel Beckett and Jacques Tati.
40-year-old Andreas (Trond Fausa Aurvag) steps off a bus into a strange city, with no memory of how he got there. It all seems familiar: people are polite, go to work, have dinner parties, go out and have sex, but no-one seems to connect or even enjoy themselves. It isn't long before Andreas marries attractive interior designer Anne-Britt (Petronella Barker), and as the pair settle into a comfortable if emotionally vacant routine, the newly arrived citizen gradually begins to question why everyone and everything seems to superficial. As the ubiquitous "Caretakers" who preside over the city take note that their latest arrival just doesn't seem to fit in, Andreas begins to concoct a plan to escape.
Driven by a fantastic performance by Trond Fausa Aurvag, whose comic timing lends the surrealism a fish-out-of-water slapstick; director Jens Lien describes the film as offering a deeply sarcastic interpretation of contemporary aspirations.
