Opening today in France is the Norwegian film Den Brysomme mannen(The Bothersome Man) which has collected a number of awards since it's premiere at Cannes Critics' Week 2006. The visuals are reminiscent of Wim Wenders and the storyline sounds suitably surreal.

Here's the trailer with English subtitles:

Immediately after a suicide attempt, Andreas (Trond Fausa Aurvåg) finds himself on a bus that drops him off, seemingly, in the middle of nowhere. A stranger takes him to an unknown city, into a tidy and impersonal flat that becomes his "home sweet home". He is offered a job in an office by an over-friendly boss and easily finds a girlfriend among very friendly and cordial colleagues. All is too good to be true.
