JUNK MAIL
(Budbringeren)

Year: 1997
Country: Norway
Run Time: 79 minutes

Neither rain, nor snow nor terror of night can keep Oslo postman Roy Amundsen from his daily rounds - slacking off, reading other peoples' letters, or just stashing a mound of direct-mail advertising in a railway tunnel because he doesn't feel like toting the dead weight. Dumped by his girl, bullied by bosses, he's got a bad attitude, a shabby apartment and a work ethic marked "return to sender." So when he comes across an apartment key carelessly left in a mailbox by an attractive young woman named Line, Roy brightens up his dreary day by letting himself into her flat and snooping around. But Line is involved way over her head in a shocking crime, and if he doesn't think fast hapless Roy is going to get licked and stamped, permanently. Unlike Roy, JUNK MAIL really delivers. It's a cruelly funny, first-class comedy-thriller that goes totally postal with dark humor, engagingly warped characters, and the worst karaoke singing we've ever heard. Don't forget to enter early; You May Already Have Won . . . (In Norwegian with Engliahs subtitles)
