BOOK TICKETS AND ENTER NOW: THE MIDDLE MAN
Norwegian writer/director Bent Hamer’s eccentric comedy drama is set in a small town plagued by accidents and economic woes, where one man has the unenviable job of breaking bad news to its citizens. Featuring a superb performance by Pål Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki’s) as the titular character with the thankless job, the supporting cast includes Aksel Hennie (The Trip), Nicolas Bro (Riders of Justice), Rossif Sutherland (Possessor), and Don McKellar (eXistenZ), with a terrific role for Due South’s Paul Gross, here playing the town sheriff. THE MIDDLE MAN is deliciously funny, very dark and superbly entertaining, with a hint of the Coen brothers’ Fargo, and a unique European/American flavour of its own.
Hamer’s debut feature Eggs was nominated for the Golden Camera award at the Cannes Film Festival in 1995, and won the International Critics Award at the Toronto Film Festival; his 2003 comedy drama Kitchen Storieswon numerous awards, including best film at the Amanda Awards in Norway, and Best Director at the Copenhagen International Film Festival; and his 2005 film Factotum, an adaptation of the Charles Bukowski cult novel, starring Matt Dillon, won Best Director at the Copenhagen International Film Festival.
Synopsis: Frank Farrelli takes on the job as a middle man in the God-forsaken town of Karmack, USA, a community in a depression so deep that they need a middle man to professionally communicate more of the bad news.
