This film actually runs 92 minuttes. Martin Asphaug won an Amanda for best norwegian film, and Camilla Strøm Henriksen won an Amanda for best female actress in "En håndfull tid" at the Norwegian international film festival.
Martin Asphaug uses all kinds of camera tricks, set-ups, fades, to tell two parallel stories about Old Martin (Espen Skjønberg), portraying the character of today, and young Martin (Nicolai L. Nilsen) as the same character 50 years earlier. The director uses the main charcters Altzheimers syndrome, and the fact that he is talking to his wife Anna all the time, to show us his memory of his time with Anna. The film`s POV of the character shows a young man who has just lost his father in a car accident, and goes to the west of Norway to buy some horses in the end of fall. He must take along a young girl, who has problems with her violent father.
The story of today tells about the character 50 years later, wanting to go to Anna. He escapes from his nursing home, going to the west of the country.
This is a funny movie. The two main charcter are today playing lead roles in very popular tv-soaps in Norway. The seriousness of the caracteres is absent because of this. The film is made almost in the same way as "The French Lieutenant's Woman", from (1981) in the way the two stories are bound together.
