Gunnar Goes God
Directed by Jensen Gunnar Hall. Norway, 2010, 85 min.
The filmmaker senses something lacking in his well-off bourgeois life. Seeking peace and spirituality, he leaves for Egypt to visit early Christianity’s first monasteries. Hoping to find an answer to ease his anxieties, he asks everyone he meets there questions about existence. Thus his journey evolves into a search that blends serious devotion with an off-beat sense of humour.
