LEC Movie night: Junkmail (Budbringeren)

  • Jun 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This month we bring you the Norwegian black comedy Junkmail by director Pål Sletaune (1997). 

Junkmail tells the story of lazy, nosy postman Roy Amundsen who has a bad habit of dipping into the mail of his customers. He takes this further when he finds the keys to the apartment of laundry assistant Line Groberg and decides to investigate her apartment. This leads to all manner of complications.

Awards: 

10 awards (Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress) at various film festivals including Cannes, Tokyo, Ghent, Sao Paulo, Stockholm.

Running time:  78 minutes

The movie will start at 7.30pm, but I will get there from about 6.30pm to set up the room.  There is enough space for you to join us upstairs and make use of the bar and space.

Please note that we show this movie for educational purposes within our club.  This is a strict members only event.  Please do not embarass yourself (and us) by bringing a guest, who we would need to turn away.

Please note that we ask members for a contribution of £3 to allow us to budget for future events.  Your support is very much appreciated! Thanks.

The upstairs bar will be opened for us from 7.00pm and please order any drinks and food at this bar.  Please note that the kitchen will close at 9.00pm, so if you want to have food you will need to order before then.

    Interesting movie: 1st half was depressing, 2nd half was an action movie. Interesting characters and dialogues. Thank you Marion!

    I love the way there was no sweeping scenery/location shots to give the viewer a sense of place, allowing the actors a freedom to portray what I thought was an engaging tale of human morals and the choices they make (in circumstances that are self made or otherwise). Still laughing at the brassy doll he picked up in the bar, I’m a bit like that after a few drinks!

    An absorbing film about misfits in a depressing world (set in Oslo). Quite surreal, funny and intriguing. Difficult to like any of the central characters. Another fine delivery from The Amazing Marion.

      *embarrassed face* Turns out I didn't have it in my collection after all. I ordered it now, but it hasn't arrived yet. It will be shown later in the year.

    I had a summer job in a bank many many years ago, my first day was in the postroom! Looking forward to this...

    This one I've already seen - deadpan sense of humour.
