Out Stealing Horses
German (Germany) Norwegian Bokmål
November 1999. 67-year-old Trond lives in new-found solitude and looks forward to spending New Year's Eve 2000 alone.
As winter arrives he discovers he has a neighbor, a man Trond knew back in 1948, the summer he turned 15 and the summer Trond's father prepared him to carry the burden of his forthcoming betrayal and disappearance. Based on Per Petterson's award-winning novel "Stealing Horses", the film also deals with Norway's Nazi past. The oscillation between collaboration and resistance has also influenced private decisions and is an indelible part of Tronds childhood memories.
At its world premiere in the Competition of the Berlinale OUT STEALING HORSES was awarded the Silver Bear for an outstanding artistic achievement (camera).
