Dimwitted, somewhat misanthropic Oslo mail carrier Roy's quiet life changes dramatically on the day he steals a set of keys and lets himself into the apartment of a deaf woman who seems to be in trouble with a psychotic criminal. Though he doesn't know it at the time, his and her fate are about to intertwine and this is not going to be to his benefit. A combination black comedy and thriller, the film presents a view of the seedy side of Oslo that is seldom seen by tourists. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Strong black comedy from Norway about disillusioned, slacker mailman"
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"This Buster Keaton wannabe movie is supposedly a comedy/romance about an inept, morose Oslo mailman, Roy (Skjaerstad)."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"What sets "Junk Mail" apart from most American comedies is how much of it takes place in silence, as Roy finds himself in slapstick situations reminiscent of Rowan Atkinson's "Mr. Bean.""
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"A funny and clever caper with a most unlikely romantic hero."
‑ Kevin Lally, Film Journal International
