About this movie

OUT STEALING HORSES follows 67-year-old Trond (Stellan Skarsgård), an Oslo professional grieving the recent death of his wife. In the winter of 1999, Trond moves to the remote woods of eastern Norway to live out the remainder of his years, in what he hopes will be a quiet, solitary retirement. A chance encounter with his only neighbor, Lars (Bjørn Floberg), rekindles dormant memories, as Trond realizes that he knew Lars back in the summer of 1948 - the summer Trond turned 15. The summer Trond grew up. Filmed in the midst of a breathtaking landscape of mountains and rivers between Norway and Sweden, Hans Petter Moland unfolds a drama about love, loss and disappointment, lifelong traumas and feelings of guilt, based on the bestselling novel by Norwegian author Per Petterson.

I watched this because Stellan Skarsgard is in it. I've only seen him in the British mini-series named River which I loved. This is an interesting story about his character Trond, as a boy in the woods of Norway. The scenery is beautiful and the acting by everyone in it is very good. Many of the characters in the story have one things in common and that is trying to run away from emotional pain. I think the movie shows how this is impossible.
