Norwegian Movie, Limbo to Montreal World Film Festival

Scripted by Sødahl, and starring Line Vernedal (Sonia), Henrik Rafaelsen (Jo), Swedish actress Lena Endre and Australian actor Bryan Brown, Limbo is ”a coming-of-age story for grown-ups” set among a young Norwegian family in 1973. Jo is stationed in Trinidad, where he works in the oil industry, and he is joined by his wife Sonia and their two children. Sonia is introduced to a homeless class of men who have the whole world as their workplace – and their wives, who follow them wherever their contracts take them. On the surface these women live lives in luxury with large houses and servants. The days are uneventful and blend together into an everlasting holiday, where the women nurse their superficial relationships over cocktails poolside – the perfect climate for self-delusion.
