La Nouvelle vie de M. Horten

A small masterpiece of poignant deadpan humor.""""
- Lou Lumenick, New York Post
Succinct in its visualizations and crisp in its pacing, its deferential storytelling is in sync with its Odd subject.""""
- Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
It's a film whose pleasures come slowly, as we, like the title character, discover the joys he's missed. Best of all, we, like Odd the Norwegian bachelor, figure out it is never too late to start living."" ""
- Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel


Odd Horten has driven the same train route every day for so long that the rest of his life has become a routine of comfortable rituals. But the time has come for the 67-year-old engineer to retire after forty years of dutiful service. His orderly, solitary existence is about to give way to a future of perplexing questions. How could Horten get himself in such an awkward situation when he should be celebrating his retirement? Will Horten ever travel by plane? Will he finally sell his prized boat? How does Horten end up in a pair of women’s red high-heeled shoes? Will he survive a nighttime drive with a blindfolded man at the wheel? The only thing for certain is that Horten is first in line for some absurd adventures and quirky encounters. And maybe even a new dog and an old love!
