THE ALMOST MAN

by Martin Lund

synopsis

Despite the approaching birth of his first child, plain-looking, 30-something Henrik does everything he can to maintain the illusion of youth by following its unbridled conventions. He also enjoys a fair amount of adolescent wisecracking, but this doesn’t seem to bother his partner. Yet when kindhearted Tone organizes a pleasant evening party for friends and colleagues in their newly acquired home, Henrik takes off, preferring his high school buddies, who share his fondness for wild piss-ups and crude humor. His inept behavior, however, masks an insecure individual who escapes the surrounding world through irony.
