Bothersome Man, The

Made with formidable assurance, a compelling look, quiet skill and impressive economy.
-Michael Wilmington, CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Delightfully droll... surreal... offbeat... enigmatically evocative.
-Leslie Felperin, VARIETY
Beautifully shot and full of surreal flourishes... A clever, stylish satire.
-Arion McNicoll, THE TIMES
Pitch-black... fresh and absorbing.
I suspect Jens Lien?s movie will achieve status as a cult classic.
-Noel Megahey,


Forty-year-old Andreas arrives in a strange city with no memory of how he got there. He is presented with a job, an apartment - even a wife. But before long, Andreas notices that something is wrong. Andreas makes an attempt to escape the city, but he discovers there's no way out. Andreas meets Hugo, who has found a crack in a wall in his cellar. Beautiful music streams out from the crack. Maybe it leads to "the other side"? A new plan for escape is hatched.
