Original Title: En ganske snill mann
Norwegian with subtitles
107 min. min
In this bittersweet smorgasbord of unforgettable characters, bawdy sex, and distinctly Scandinavian tragicomedy, laconic part-time gangster Ulrik (Stellan Skarsgård) leaves prison after a 12-year stint for murder. A free man, he must choose between taking revenge on the snitch who turned him in and attempting reconciliation with his family. Skarsgård delivers a deviously comic and somewhat frightening performance as a man whose gentleness has its limits.
