Film, from 5 Nov 2016




A former LIFF audience favourite, Elling is a heartwarming black comedy about two society misfits struggling with day to day life. Elling is a painfully shy and neurotic middle-aged man who finds himself alone when his protective mother passes away. Discovered at their home in a cupboard, he is sent to a state home where gradually he builds a close friendship with his polar opposite, the loud and sex-obsessed hulk Kjell. After two years they are discharged and placed in an Oslo apartment. Suddenly they are faced with overcoming their compulsions and phobias for real, and together.
