Jernanger (Shooting the Sun AKA The Storm in My Heart)


Damned sun.

-A shot and a beer!

-Play one more and l'll give you a shot.

-You're cruel, Eivind.

-You get a beer.

My throat is totally parched!

Stay on your feet tonight. Last

Thursday l had to carry you ashore.



Hownice! Hi!

Welcome home!

God, it's cold to come home. l don't

knowhowyou don't freeze to death!

l'm freezing!

Howlong will you stay this time?

-What do you mean?

-Before you slide back down?

You'll have to ask his wife.

-What's with the boat?

-ls there something with the boat?

Well, she's listing in the water.

-Oh, so you're an expert on boats?

-l just said that she's lopsided.

-Where have you just come from?


-ls it nice in Spain?

-Oh, yes; really great.

So, nowyour mission is to come from

that fascist colony and dictate to me?

Take that four-legged tumor on

a leash of yours and go home.

And take a look in the mirror. Looks like

Satan's covered your face in varnish.

Thank God the far right's not in power.

They had stopped you at the border.

Worry about that. And don't give a sh*t

about howthe boat stands in the water.

Welcome home.

-Oh goddamn.

-Don't talk.

l'm heading north tonight.

You know, for that funeral.

lt still isn't too late to come...

-ldar, dear ldar.

-Honestly, Eivind.

-Howlong has it been?

-You have the figures.

lt's been thirty-three years!

Since it is Beatrice's husband being

buried, maybe you could be there.

-People have asked about you.

-Asked about me?

Let them go on asking, stupid idiots.

lt's outrageous the whole region -

-wasn't sold to the Russians long ago.

Damned waste land.

They shouldn't have funerals,

but celebrate, damned Eskimos.


-ls it okay?

-lt's always okay.

-Have you been thinking?

-Can't think about much else.

Me either.

lt seems l'm 7 weeks along.

-l think l just need more time.

-We don't have that.

lt's you that l want.

l want to be with you.

But l just can't... a father now.

-Can't you get your old work back?

-Why do you say that?

-lt's not just about you and me.

-No, but you don't want a welder.

-How do you know?. l do too!

-That's not what l want to be.

- You want me, but not the baby.

- No, that's not what l'm saying.

-l am extremely unsure.


-l'm 22 years old!

-And l'm 25 and l haven't done sh*t.

Then l knowwhere you stand.

Sleep somewhere else.

-Come. Sit.

-l need to be alone a bit.

Hi. Sorry,

l thought it was empty here.

-lt is empty here.


-Get your drugs somewhere else.

-l'm not going to steal anything from you.

There hasn't been morphine

here for twenty years.

But every year a new genius

tries to break it open.

l wasn't going to steal anything. Are you

going to shoot me for staying the night?




You okay?

-Do you knowwhat's wrong with him?

-lmpossible to say. Contact the hospital.

-You are Eivind Strand?

-Yes, l know.

Your heart is not working as it should.

We've done some tests.

l haven't listened to doctors for 30

years. l'm not about to start now.

No, but you have to listen to this.

lt is rather serious.

Yes, that's well and good.

May l go home now?.

You may have a disease

known as ''growing heart.''


This means that your heart is growing,

and finally it will stop beating.

Go bother someone else.

Here you are.

Do you see me any place else?

lt was a nice trip.

You should have come.

-Oh really? Because?

-l brought back some dried hearts.

l hate that sh*t!

You'll probably get a lot of visitors,

since you're lying here alone.


-l mean, Rolvsen, Pedersen and...

-Cut the crap.

-Maybe you'll have a visit from up north?
