Director: Hans Petter Moland
Filmmaker Hans Petter Moland teams up with actor Stellan Skarsgard for the third time (Zero Kelvin and Aberdeen) with this minimalist crime-comedy.
The large and lumbering Ulrik (Skarsgard) is the kind of guy who just wants to get along with everyone. Just released from a 12-year prison stint for murdering his wife's lover, he's determined to go straight. His former crime boss has other plans for him.
An enjoyable criminal caper, A Somewhat Gentle Man brings deft physical comedy to the usual understated Nordic wit.
