Run AWAY from home
Bent Hamer’s Home for Christmas is the worst kind of Christmas kitsch. This simply cannot be the same man who made Kitchen Stories, Factotum and O’ Horten, each a viable candidate on a cineaste’s ‘Top Ten Scandinavian Films’ list. No, we choose instead to believe that Home for Christmas is actually a very clever horror film about an alien kitsch-monster that has hijacked Bent Hamer’s being and is making films under his name.
Home for Christmas | Directed by Bent Hamer (Norway 2010), with Nina Andresen Borud and Joachim Calmeyer. Opens December 2. Norwegian.
