Immersed in the breathtaking beauty of the Norwegian mountains with a stream-of-consciousness narrative that swings toward the witty and likable, Out of Nature is a comically contemplative film about dissatisfaction, the desire for change, and trying to find solace in solitude.

Socially awkward Martin, played with vigor by one of the film’s directors Ole Giæver, can’t stop nursing his neurosis. Feeling dissatisfied with his role as a mediocre family man and loner in the workplace, he decides to take a weekend hike through the mountains to a cabin in order clear his head. Almost always the only one on-screen, we learn through Martin’s constant stream-of-consciousness all of his internal conflicts—his feelings of dormancy and apathy in his marriage, his stunted relationship with his son, his intense want for sexual intimacy, even his views on reincarnation. As Martin makes his way through the gorgeous wilderness, the calm observational mood of the film dips in and out of moments of unexpected hilarity, and he struggles with feelings of profound loneliness paired with a diligent need for solitude. Immersing us in the breathtaking beauty of the Norwegian mountains and developing a quickly sympathetic character in Martin, Out of Nature is a comically contemplative piece about dissatisfaction, the desire for change, and trying to find solace in isolation.
