The Art of Negative Thinking

A group of several disabled people, led by a determined psychologist, set out to achieve their next goal: to convince thirty-five-year-old Geir, who ended up in a wheelchair after a car accident, that he should join their group, to learn to think positively together with them, and to save their crumbling relationship. But the psychologist has no idea who she's dealing with. Instead of accepting their "teachings of positive thinking," Geir rebels against the unwelcome invasion of "positive" energy and, with the help of sometimes brutal honesty, alcohol and marijuana, takes control of the situation. Thus, inside a rundown house in a quiet neighborhood, a one-night showdown with false sincerity, suffocating compassion, and seemingly tried-and-true methods of healing the soul occurs. Welcome to "A Course in Negative Thinking"!
Debut director Bård Breien has mixed a Scandinavian psychological drama about interpersonal relationships with a sarcastic black comedy. The original form is made more attractive by the musical accompaniment for rock connoisseurs (Steppenwolf, Nina Simone and the aforementioned Johnny Cash).
