  1. Superfrog's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    A great thriller, as well as a pleasant feel good film. Extremely well constructed. Discusses emprisonnent, in between walls and in social networks. Aren't we all somewhat. While I hate to put I'd down to gender, discussing a dangerous man sexually exploited is such a rare sight it merits mention. This part is pretty well done too. No scene is too much, it was a real pleasure to watch even at 4am in a train.

  2. fada19's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Un monde glauque et cet homme ...lumineux une merveille !

  3. Jean-Go's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Une excellente comédie, qui sent bon le Groland. Emballée dans un écrin nordique salasse et froid des plus agréables. Si l'on n'atteint jamais vraiment le sublime, l'atmosphère intense qui s'en dégage séduit. D'excellents comédiens, pour un dénouement peut-être un rien classique. Les musiques font un peu trop téléfilmesques, mais ne boudez pas votre plaisir si vous aimez la misère des malchanceux de la vie.

  5. azoulay's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Avec un humour ravageur le film plonge dans le quotidien "prolo" des norvégiens . La désuétude des des gangsters, des lieux, des façons de vivre, d'aimer de tuer, de manger, de s'accoupler ressemblent plus à l'enfer qu'à une réinsertion pour ancien tolard. Tout foire sauf une naissance et c'est le début d'une autre vie. super ... finalement, raisonnablement optimiste, Hans Peter Moland

  6. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    NORWAY ... 12 points ! .... and Stellan SKARSGÅRD what an awsome actor !!

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Tous les films de Moland méritent un large détour, de par la qualité de sa production, l'originalité certaine de ses scénarii et le choix judicieux de ses interprètes. Baigné d'une saine impudicité, cette oeuvre n'échappe pas à quelques éloges circonstanciels, et tout particulièrement pour le rôle tenu par Bjorn Sundquist, en jaloux patron de garage, aux longues tirades sentencieuses. www.cinefiches.com

  10. Raul Duarte's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    El primer tercio me encantó, pero sólo el primer tercio.

  11. retalistico's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Es una comedia muy al estilo alemán. No tiene mayores giros. Puedes verla mientras miras redes sociales. Buenos actores del género en un guión bastante flojo. Al final da pereza.

  12. Alejandro Nenclares's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Humor negro nórdico, un tanto soso, buenas actuaciones, finalmente es un buen tipo, el mensaje de la película es superficial pero buen final que explica todo. Entretenida.

  13. Emmanuel L'audacieux's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

  14. Elif's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Very authentic and weirdly funny in unexpected ways.

  15. Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Everyone deserves a second chance. Also Norway seems like a very cold place and everything is made out of fish.

  16. Michael Harbour's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Stellan Skarsgard delivers a masterful, understated performance as an ex-con desperately trying to stay an ex-con while attempting to connect with his son and his expecting daughter-in-law (who was told he had died, not that he was in prison). The supporting cast fills out the movie with grounded, believable, often off-kilter characters and much of the film has a wry sense of humor to it.

  17. Tyler Aikens's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Decent dark comedy flick but with an ending that unfortunately doesn't fit in at all.

  18. Pierre's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Plodding and inert. Using a little person for a cheap laugh is a clear indication that the idea vault is empty. Middle aged sex scenes where one of the characters is ugly is another. This film has both. It's slightly redeemed by Sarsgard and Bjørn Sundquist, who plays a fast talking auto shop owner.

  19. tachyon's rating of the film A Somewhat Gentle Man

    Reminds me of Aki Kaurismaki's Proletariat Trilogy. Took those best bits of noir which I love so much.
