Factotum * Bent Hamer * 2005

Posted in arthouse on by .

“Factotum” is a wonderfull film “about nothing”. Henry Chinaski is a poetic alcoholic and a writer. Since his art isn’t appreciated, he has several jobs during the film trying to make a living. Just as he hops jobs, he hops women, all of them good looking and a little thrashy. There is not much to this film, it is just Chinaski getting fired again, then drunk (or the other way around), hooking up with another woman and that for a few times. Still the film is highly amusing with great dialogues, monologues and situations and a razor-sharp view on current society. Very amusing!
