Come and enjoy a selection of Ronald Grant’s personal favourite films.
Kitchen Stories is a 2003 Norwegian film directed by Bent
Hamer. He discovered some research from post war Sweden stating that an
average housewife walks the equivalent number of miles as the distance
between Stockholm and Congo, while preparing her family meals. Taking
this idea, he created a story where Swedish efficiency researchers come
to Norway to study Norwegian men, in an effort to help optimize their
use of their kitchens. Folke Nilsson (Tomas Norström) is assigned to
study the habits of Isak Bjørvik (Joachim Calmeyer). By the rules of the
research institute, Folke has to sit on an umpire’s chair in Isak’s
kitchen and observe him from there, but never talk to him.
