Songs from Kampen Bistro

Every Tuesday 25 tattooed middle-aged men take a break from their everyday lives to meet and drink beer, tell bad jokes and sing dirty rock songs. The guys have even promised to sing in each other’s funerals – a joke of course, it has never occurred to them that it’s going to happen. But one day, when one of them confides he’s got little time left to live, they realize that life is fragile and that none of them are immortal.THE MEN’S ROOM is a warm and touching documentary about a brotherhood and their joy of music and life.

THE MEN'S ROOM has won the Norwegian Documentary Competition.
