Mannen som elsket Yngve

The Man Who Loved Yngve
Der Mann, der Yngve liebte
Directed by: 

Concise, precise and contemporary, in short: a success. Born in 1972, the Norwegian director Stian Kristiansen presents his debut, set in 1989, about the coming-out of protagonist Jarle. It deals with the topic in a novel, differentiated and sensitive manner – and with an impressive acting accomplishment  by the entire ensemble.
