‘How are you?’ · ‘Do we kiss each other hello now?’
Norge and his friends live in the moment: drinking, smoking and partying; always with something to talk about. When 16-year-old Josephine tells Norge that she is pregnant, there is only brief moment of silence. As they grow tentatively closer, the two young people start to develop feelings which challenge their previously held views of life and of themselves – although ‘love’ is not necessarily a word they would think to use. The camera attentively registers gestures and glances, observing what the two bodies and faces are saying, or sometimes not saying, to each other. Without judgement and with respectful proximity, Kasper Rune Larsen's debut film paints a realistic portrait of young people and the complex multiplicity of their realities.
