Out of Nature (2014)
A journey inside Martin's head. He's on a weekend mountain trip, and we get to know his thoughts. Unsensored, essential, existential and silly about feelings and fantasies. A recognizable film about being human, and how we tick and think.

Drama directed and starring Ole Giæver. It is most famous maybe due to the film's poster that show the actor/director's butt while running in Norwegian nature.

Glass Dolls (2014)
A mother reports her student daughter Lisa missing, but detective Aslak Eira is getting too little information, and she is found in a lake. The more they investigate, the less they seem to understand. Then Lisa's best friend goes missing.

Crime thriller based upon Jorun Thørring's novel. It was planned as a first film in a trilogy but lackluster promotion, lack of funds and average-to-poor reviews and lousy figures economically means this is pretty unreasonable to believe will happen. Surprisingly none seem keen to see this film directed by Nils Gaup.
