‘Blind’ has been named Film of the Year by the Norwegian Film Critics Association


On the 8th of April Blind was awarded the Best Norwegian Film of the Year by the Norwegian Film Critics’ Association. In addition to this award, director Eskil Vogt has won twelve local and international awards for his film.

Blind is a comedy that doesn’t invoke hysterical laughter, yet it is packed with smart, cheeky humour. It is a relationship drama that doesn’t roar about how hard it is to live together, but draws a bead on the conflicts. It is also a psychological thriller – not spooky, but playful, strange and funny in a dark way. It oozes a creativity you have to be, well, blindnot to see,” said Norwegian director Margreth Olin on behalf of the critics’ jury.
