November 26, 2007
The movie's title character Odd Horten is a habit-bound train driver, who is about to retire. On the day of his retirement he ends up in an unexpected situation, and is forced to reconsider his life. As in other movies by Hamer, the themes are loneliness and old age, and the courage to take chances.
