Aberdeen 2000 trailer
Aberdeen is a 2000 Norwegian-British drama film directed by Hans Petter Moland, starring Stellan Skarsgård, Lena Headey and Charlotte Rampling.
Lawyer Kaisa Heller, just promoted, has no apparent emotional attachments, preferring nameless encounters with men. She is surprised to receive a call from Helen, her dying mother, with a final request to bring Kaisa's estranged father Tomas to see her at the hospital. The film is a bit of a road movie with encounters along the way, some confrontational, such as boozing louts who harass her father or angry stewardesses issuing ultimatums, while some are romantic, such as truck driver Clive who Kaisa attempts to use, but instead finds herself attached to. What started as an unavoidable chore, perhaps the last she will had never be able to dodge, becomes a new starting point in her life.
