The Man Who Loved Yngve
The eighties are coming to an end, and Jarle Klepp is opposed to almost everything. The only exceptions are Palestine, his mom, his friend Helge and his girl Katrine. All this changes when a new kid comes to town. Yngve plays tennis, wears polo shirts and listens to pop music, but in spite of all of this, Jarle Klepp falls in love with him. The well written dialogue, the impressive acting and Stian Kristiansen's great directing makes THE MAN WHO LOVED YNGVE a gem of a movie.
Stian Kristiansen (b. 1972) graduated from the Norwegian Film School in Lillehammer in 2006. Before starting his formal education he directed a series of shorts. In addition he has acting experience from Pål Jackman's short BENNY (1998) and Arild Østin Ommundsen's MONGOLAND (2001). THE MAN WHO LOVED YNGVE is his debut as a feature-film director.
