Region 2 Greek import, plays in English without subtitles. Set in Norway and Scotland, Aberdeen is a road movie that is as concerned with the geography of the heart as that of a topographical map. Kaisa (Lena Headey) is an ambitious lawyer who has just celebrated her recent promotion by having dominant sex w ith a man whose name she has no interest in learning. When her estranged mother, Helen (Charlotte Rampling), whom she hasn't been in contact with for a decade, calls her up to tell her that she is dying of cancer, Kaisa is faced with her mother's req uest to track down her divorced husband, Tomas (Stellan Skarsgard). A raging drunk, Tomas has been frequenting the pubs of Norway for a number of years, and Kaisa, after some initial hesitation, sets out for Oslo to find him. When she is finally reun ited with Tomas, his drunkenness prevents them from being allowed on the flight back to Aberdeen, where her mother is hospitalized. Kaisa and Tomas embark on an overland journey that takes them across Norway and on a ferry to England, with Tomas drin king constantly and Kaisa discovering something that may be love with a self-effacing truck driver (Ian Hart). . . . .

By Stephanie De Pue TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The premise of "Aberdeen" is outrageously sentimental; however, Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter [1973] [DVD]; Under The Sand [2001] [DVD]), with her trademark dry delivery, has never uttered a sentimental word onscreen in her life. In this movie, as "Helen,"she's supposedly in an Aberdeen hospital, near death with cancer. She calls her daughter "Kaisa," a successful, feisty(as they so often say), London lawyer with sidelines in snorting coke and one-night stands with strangers, played by Lena Headey (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - Season 2 [DVD]). Helen asks Kaisa to go find Helen's husband (common-law or otherwise, we never know), and Kaisa's father, Tomas Heller, as played by Stellan Skarsgard(Breaking The Waves [DVD] [1996]; Mamma Mia! [DVD] ). He's previously worked the North Sea oil rigs, but is now back in his Norwegian homeland.

Aberdeen, a town on Scotland's Northeast coast is, in its modern incarnation, pretty much a wild west rootin' tootin' oil boom town, where you might go quite a distance hearing only Texas accents and passing only Tex-Mex eateries. Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus, in his series of mystery novels, calls Aberdeen natives "Wooly Boots," though I can't remember why for the life of me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint hearted 15 April 2006
Format:DVD
Absolutely brilliant, gritty, right down to the bone, so real, no holding back. Stellan Skarsgards portrayal of an alcoholic is so utterly real that at times you have to look away with embarassment. Not for everyone this if you're one of those people who likes things to be sugar coated forget it, but if you want to see a great story with gutsy performances from all concerned watch it. Every performance is a joy. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

Can't believe this movies wasn't released in the UK. Some great performances, including the most realistic portrayal of an alcoholic I've seen.
