Abstract:

At the 1997 Cannes Festival’s Semaine de la critique, Pål Sletaune’s Junk Mail/Budbringeren (1997) attracted international attention and was seen as the harbinger of a new and exciting phase in Norwegian cinema. In this article, Sletaune’s short film Eating Out is placed in context and discussed as a thematic and stylistic forerunner to his acclaimed feature film.
