Worth Watching - Nov 16: Bent Hamer's O'Horten Trailer
The trailer for the Norwegian indie film O'Horten arrived earlier this week, and although I wasn't too fond of the film itself, I thought I'd feature this trailer for those who may be interested in checking it out. O'Horten is a charming film about the 67-year-old Odd Horten (played by Bård Owe), who retires from his position as a train engineer after 40 years. This shouldn't be taken the wrong way, but O'Horten is a small film, it has that very indie feel to it. While this trailer isn't anything amazing, it does at least feature on of my favorite elements of the film - the music written by Norwegian band Kaada. I hope you enjoy!

The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and went on to play at numerous other fests throughout the year, before being picked up by Sony Pictures Classics for distribution. O'Horten arrives in very limited theaters starting on February 20th, 2009.
