Eating Out

Pål Sletaune | 1994 | ★★★★
A duffel coat-sporting diner (Robert Skjærstad), eating quite the most hideous looking meal of burger and chips in quite the most hideous looking greasy spoon caf’, has his fine dining experience rudely interrupted by an armed robber (Bjørn Sundquist). However, when said pilferer’s girlfriend (Anneke von der Lippe) demands to be fed, the gun wielding thief scarpers, leaving the scuzzy young woman and unfazed diner to share the unlikeliest of romantic meals, in Sletaune’s blackly hilarious, metaphor-laden short film.
