    OUT OF NATURE is a journey inside Martin's head and out into the wild nature. Martin is alone on a hiking trip in the mountains and we hear all of his uncensored thoughts and brutally honest observations about himself and the people around him. With thoughts and fantasies ranging from the trivial and infantile to the existential and profound, OUT OF NATURE is an honest and funny portrait of a young man wanting to break the mould.

    A disarmingly simple exercise about a midlife-crisis-ridden man's weekend wilderness trek.

    Dennis Harvey, Variety

    The clever balance co-directors Ole Giæver and Marte Vold achieve is to make Martin a rather endearing character despite his lusty longings.

    Mark Adams, Screen Daily

    An effortlessly penetrating self-portrait of the artist as a doubt-plagued middle-aged man

    John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

    (Ole) presents a situation where enlightenment and introspection stems from one's engagement with nature
