Inspired by a very odd true story, Kitchen Stories is one of the most charming and original comedies that has screened at LIFF and is a firm audience favourite. In 1950s Scandinavia, the Swedish Home Research Institute sends out a fleet of scientific observers to male households in rural Norway to record the movements of men in their kitchens. Regretful of having signed on as a research subject, loner Isak shuts his observer Fault out in the snow. But the single-minded Swedish observer persists and eventually gains the trust of his irascible subject.
