elling

Written By Ingvar Ambjørnsen | Directed by Sharanya Ramprakash


Mommy's boy Elling and his roommate, the uncouth Kjell Bjarne, are the Odd Couple of Oslo; a pair of confused souls taking their first steps in the outside world after years of isolated, institutional life. Given a flat in the city by the social services department, they must re-assimilate themselves into society or face a return to the asylum. So its simply a question of convincing their social worker that they are really normal - even if it does feel safer sleeping in the wardrobe...Based on the cult Norwegian novel  by Ingvar Ambjørnsen and Oscar nominated film, Elling is a delightful heart-warming comedy.
