Best Film - Mannheim Heidelberg International Film Festival Morning comes to a small town in Norway, where the lives of various characters intertwine in Chlorox, Ammonia and Coffee, a comedy-drama as unique and unpredictable as its title. Insightful and entertaining, it suggests a Robert Altman ensemble piece but directed with Dogma 95 edginess. Among the dwellers is the singing and very pregnant Maria, expecting her second child with shiftless Erik, who s more interested in money and other women. Gunvor, Maria's mother-in-law and a notorious local shoplifter, gets thrown out of the vegetable store run by eccentric Jesus, and sells pills for young Elin, who works as Maria s babysitter. And that s not even getting into Iris, Elin's midwife mother, forever in love with trampoline-jumping police officer, Odd. Director Mona J. Hoel keeps the many characters spinning with equal doses of humor and pain, all the while posing questions about the nature of life and love. Full of dreams and gentle irony, Chlorox, Ammonia and Coffee asks what the good is in the order of cleanliness when you don t have the courage to take risks.
