LEND ME YOUR SUGAR

Geir Jardar Olsen

A grumpy recluse is challenged by his cheerful, love-struck neighbor. Every day she shows up on his doorstep hoping to "borrow sugar," her need for companionship clashing with his privacy. But what if his rejections finally work, and the lady vanishes?

This film managed to be fun with laugh out loud moments while dealing with themes of loneliness and isolation. The director’s intent was clear and I love that he used some of the actors that he grew up watching on the big screen in Norway! — Becky M (Festival Director)
