Gone With The Woman

SF Film

"That was when she started coming around more often. In the evenings, right before I turned in for the night. She would sit down and talk. Talk about how much she loved silence, and how great it was to spend time alone. Talk and talk and never stop." (Erlend Loe) Gone with the Woman is a film about a young man’s encounter with the enigma that is love and the even greater enigma that is woman. After being invaded, seduced and conquered, our unnamed main character realizes that he has a girlfriend. How else could you explain the sudden presence of a talkative young lady in his apartment? Before long, she’s turning his life upside-down; enthusiastically rearranging the furniture while he trails after her trying to have a say in the matter. Still uncertain whether he’s particularly confident in matters concerning love or women, he decides to make an attempt to understand both of these forces. He realizes that if all parties are to have space in this relationship, he’ll have to fight for every inch of territory. But it isn’t easy to stake a claim when you can never get a word in edgewise. Gone with the Woman is a film version of Erlend Loe’s debut novel about a young man’s first tentative steps into the potential disaster area of love, about the female monologues that pass for dialogues, and the right of modern man to decide who wears the pants in the family.
