Through a Glass, Darkly
Original title: I et speil i en gåte
IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1170396/
We decided to watch a "native" movie when we went to Norway last and timed it to the premiere of this bittersweet painfully beautiful and odd film. It has stayed with me, which is one of the few really trustworthy quality meters I have. So I recommend it warmly.
My only comment would be that the main character, Cecilie played by Marie Haagenrud came across as older than she was supposed to be. But I also think that some of the nuances in her personality hadn't been available had they selected a younger actress.
It is based on a book with the same name by Jostein Gaarder (author of amongst other "Sophie's World").
