The Night

Steffan Strandberg, 63 min

Norway, 2017

The Night

A beautifully animated and bittersweet Norwegian film about two brothers and their upbringing with an alcoholic mother and musician father.

Two young boys grow up with an alcoholic mother. The sad story, however, is presented in beautiful, bittersweet animations and with plenty of nuances in a film where the now adult filmmaker Steffan Strandberg looks back at his childhood. He and his brother are marked by their common upbringing, where the mother would rather drink beers with her long-haired friends than take care of them. The close ties, the difficult past and the will to let the wounds heal make up the core of 'The Night', where the boys wait for their travelling musician father to – maybe – come back and fetch them in the middle of the night. Nothing shall be revealed here, but there is a very special will to learn from the past, to look ahead and to take care of one's life in the Strandberg brothers' shared story, which will no doubt reverberate in anyone who has come close to suffering neglect – and everyone who likes a good story told from the heart.
