2021 Award nominations

The Sauna (Bastun)

Nominated for Best Arthouse Film

Dir. Olle Christiansen Meijer




Four naked old men are sitting in a dark hot sauna. They enjoy the heat and are small talking about the weather, fotball, TV shows and of course about the change of route 36. Suddenly, out of nowhere one of the men says he no longer can get an erection. It gets quiet in the sauna - the men look at each other nervously. Slowly, a careful discussion about sex begins - a conversation none of the men had ever had before.
