Best Film at 2012's Karlovy Vary Film Festival, The Almost Man is a frequently hilarious, engaging, and brutally honest portrait of a 35-year old man with a definite case of arrested development. Henryk has a new apartment, a challenging job and a beautiful pregnant wife, which is where the trouble starts. Facing the onset of adulthood, he starts hanging out more with his male buddies, shirking responsibilities at work and avoiding any decisions at home. This most impressive debut feature from Martin Lund features a great, touching performance by Henrik Rafaelsen (winner of the Best Actor award at Karlovy Vary).
