Zero kelvin (Kjaerlighetens kjotere)

Edition 1996
113' - 1995 - Drama - Dialogue: Norwegian, Swedish
Director: Hans Petter Moland Composer: Terje Rypdal With: Stellan Skarsgård, Gard B. Eidsvold, Bjørn Sundquist
1925. Norway's capital has just changed its name, Lenin is dead and the young writer Henrik Larsen has just proposed to his girlfriend Gertrude. She refuses, at least for the time being... With a great appetite for life, Larsen signs on as a trapper with an East Greenland hunting company, leaving his "fiancF" behind. Larsen's stay on Greenland is a meeting with life's extremities. It is a life in a small hut together with Holm, a scientist turned trapper and Randbaek their vulgar and diabolical boss. Randbaek tries every trick, including his special raw humour and his mystical powers to destroy Larsen. The stay in Greenland is a fight for survival, a fight to keep up hunting quotas and a fight over Larsen's love for Gertrude.
