Presented by Comcast. Cinequest comes to a closing with one of its tastiest treats, the inspired Norwegian charmer My Jealous Barber, one of the warmest and funniest European comedies since My Life as a Dog.
When love starts intruding on how you get your hair cut, whats a guy to do? Thats what the young hero, Bent, asks himself when he sees his sleepy life turned upside down by the arrival of Susie, who steals his heart and, in the process, threatens his friendship to the town barber, Frank. With a new woman in the neighborhood, Frank fears losing not only a customer but a friend -- will the three of them find a way to remain friends, or will Franks jealousy sabotage the relationship?
Always unpredictable and full of low-key humor and human sympathy, Annette Sjursens My Jealous Barber is a film about taking chances in love and life, about friendship and family, and about how hilariously important a haircut can be to a man. Come fall in love with this crowd-pleaser, the perfect closer to the festivals remarkable array of talent.
