When children play, adults play as well: some are DJing with microwaves, the others turn themselves to bacon snacks. This is the Nordic humour of two directors whose work we previously met in 2016, with the short Small Talk

It’s Saturday afternoon in a Norwegian play-land. Children play uninhibited while an adult couple watches and eavesdrops on a conversation between three women about the existence of bacon on chips. That same couple decides to meddle in the conversation where they are not wanted instead of resolving their own issues. In great Noewegian humor awkwardness ensues while we sink lower in our chairs until it’s over. (Rui Mendes)
