What an insane and beautiful thing this Bent Hamer film is.
In the 1950’s The Home Research Institute sends a group of scientific observer to rural Norway in order to study the kitchen routines of the average single man. Under no circumstances are they allowed to interact with the subjects of the experiment…
Kitchen Stories is a clever and simple comedy with depth and a tiny surreal feel, carefully crafted and beautifully acted. It manages to get emotions out of its zany subject with slow but perfect timing. This is a rare piece of cinematic gentle oddball. Simple: It’s a must see for film buffs.
Kitchen Stories is a GREAT film.
