Recollections of a summer when a boy becomes a man.

November 1999. Sixty-seven-year-old Trond lives in solitude and is looking forward to spending the the year 2000 alone as well. With the arrival of winter he finds out that his neighbour is a man who he knew many years ago, in 1948. That summer, Trond had just turned fifteen. It was the summer he grew up and first encountered the scent of the woman he desired. The same woman with whom his father intended to spend the rest of his life...

The film Out Stealing Horses is based on the book of the same name by Norwegian author Per Petterson, who has received a number of awards for this work such as the Norwegian Critics Award, the Booksellers’ Best Book of the Year Award (Norway), the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize (UK), or the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.

The film became the Norwegian candidate for an Oscar, and at the 2019 Berlinale received a Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution for Rasmus Videbæk’s cinematography.

"The film version of Out Stealing Horses is an advertisement for the book it is based on, in the best sense of the word: it makes one want to pick it up (again) and read in detail everything that the film simply could not include." – Marcel Kabát, Lidové noviny

English: Per Petterson: Out Stealing Horses, 2005, translation Anne Born
